    It's what I always do although it's counter-intuitive and not everybody knows it. But alright I'll stop complaining.(Though I still think it would be much better to have an option)

    You have low standards then, but whatever.

    EDIT: Oh it's supposed to be a pun, sry.

    I'm using KDE 4.10.5 and the desktop cashew is really small, also.

    Nobody complains that Firefox? functionality is extensible via add-ons that have to be installed.
    Plasma being extensible is not the problem, it is actually a good thing. The problem is that a very basic functionality is not implemented by default.

    Actually a lot of people care. Just read the huge discussion on the bug report:
    https://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=154535
    Unfortunately the main plasma developer seems just as stubborn as you so they eventually gave up on it.

    I have seen two explanations:
    1) Right click isn't always available. That's like 5% of the userbase and on those devices plasma could easily use a different containment if they don't already.
    2) "It will be awesome, just wait for it." Five years later... it's not awesome.

Not really that big of a deal, but what bothers me is that this has been requested for 5 years and no good reason was given why it hasn't been implemented. It feels like some KDE developers don't care about the users. When for example Gnome-Shell had no shutdown button they changed it after many users complained.

    Nice, very smooth animations.

    Ok, I found the documentation page of the containment class and that was in C++. Maybe it is also possible to write one in javascript or something but still, why should you have to code stuff just to get a clean desktop? It would be so easy to provide an option for that and many people want it. It makes no sense that it still isn't implemented.

    No, it doesn't.
