| What you're seeing there is a Plasma workspace with 5 activities
| (aka "desktop Containments") zoomed out so that you can see them all. The
| third one in the top row is a folderview. folderview, you see, is both an
| Applet as well as a Containment; in fact all Containments are also Applets.
| This purposeful design decision allows one to repurpose certain applets
| as "things that cover my screen" or "things that appear in a panel" (to name
| but two possibilities).

FolderView is the awesome?! [updated]

,----[ Quote ]
| For those who don’t know about FolderView: It is a Plasmoid you can add to
| your desktop in KDE 4 to show files. It can also be used to emulate
| the “normal” desktop (for those who really really want it) but let me show
| you a few more very nifty things you can do with it.

| I hope this shows how powerful this already is now.
| But it will become even more awesome once Nepomuk search can be used with
| this. (Or can it already?) Imagine showing all files tagged with “todo”
| across your whole file system. Or how about showing all files related to your
| thesis? Just tell it to show all files containing words related to your
| thesis.

Screencast: Showing Off KDE 4.1

,----[ Quote ]
| KDE 4.1, which is supposed to become the KDE4 version usable by 'normal'
| people, is coming at the end of July. When Ars reviewed the beta release,
| they were positive in that it was moving forward at an "extraordinary pace".
| Despite the positive notions in the news, many seem to have problems actually
| seeing all the new stuff being done in KDE4 - just like how people fail to
| see the massive amount of work put into Vista. KDE developer Rafael Fernandez
| Lopez (I'm sorry for the lack of diacritical marks, an OSNews bug we're
| working on) decided to put together a screencast showing off all the new
| stuff coming in KDE 4.1.
