Description:

"KDE Spectra" is my idea of how the next generation KDE should look like.
I am sure you will like the concept of a horizontal, smart and file-browser-like "K Menu" never seen before.

 Too many items

Some argument for my negative vote, there are too many items in the menu and they occupie too much place.

too many items - yes, i agree. i guess the guy just took the CURRENT Kmenu (which indeed sucks).

but it takes up too much space?!? and what where you gonna use that space for, anyway? as long as you're in the menu, you don't do anything else, and as soon as you start doing anything else, the menu disappears. imho, the menu should AT LEAST cover 2/3 of the screen, and include recent documents and other stuff....

"Hey, here we got some unused space, lets use all of that and some more, you'll get it back when you want it!" This doesn't seem like a good approach, just beacuse there is some "unused" space doesn't mean you should use it. As said in another post, you have to move the mouse longer distances to do something in this example.
I think it's seem like a bad idea the more I look at it, you have no (okay, a little) information of where you are, the good thing that you get with a hierarchial menu is totally gone, the small "system settings" in the third screenshot seems just thrown in, no special idea behind that.
And the arrows, how can there be a forward-arrow? A backward-arrow I can understand (although it seems a bit odd, but that what you have have when dropping the hierarchy of kmenu).
What does the symbols to the right mean is one more question I've got, which one is the "shutoff" and which one is the "hibernate" (if that is what they stand for).

And in this screenshot the items are not ordered in some specific way, seems just random to me, which is bad thing.

Hopefully the creator can answer these questions.

i wouldn't say i really like this menu, but i do like the fact he doesn't sacrifice everything to make it small. having larger buttons might make you move your mouse more, but it also gives larger targets - so you don't have to point that much. also, you can present more information at one time so you don't have to click that much.

of course, you shouldn't take space *just* because it is available, you're right there...

 nice idea

I do quite like that idea, but I have to agree it does use far too much room. It would be more usable if it were put to the left/right of the screen and then going virtically upwards, like the kmenu does now. But have it going from the kicker to the top of the screen. The inegrated volume manager is a nice touch, although its usability is somewhat questionable, a volume manager in the taskbar is a more usable option.

WTF? it does take up too much room? and WHAT exactly are you going to do with that room when you are using the menu? nothing!!! i think its way to small. why not make it full-screen? its useless to leave space for anything once someone clicks the Kmenu button, as he/she won't be doing anything else besides browsing the menu - you CANT do anything else, because if you would click somewhere else, you close the menu.

Just imagine how much more you would need to move the mouse than you need now... the usability is zero...

(not only because it takes a lot of space on the screen, but because of the buttons)

It is not the point to make something look good if it has no improvement in usability...

 space

although i don't think it takes up WAY too much space, i definitely don't want a menu taking up the full screen. yeah when you click on the menu it's only open till you click on something else and that's why you opened it in the first place, i hear you. But saying that's a reason to make it take the full screen is like saying that every time you open a new window/program it might as well take up the whole screen, afterall you can only use one program at a time, and you can use the taskbar to switch between windows.

I think it could use a little more tinkering but it would be nice to give KDE its own unique style instead of mooching off of OSX or window$.

Would be a nice default theme too.

Do you like or dislike Ubuntu Unity?
 Yes, unity is alien technology!
 It is less confusing than Gnome 3 default, shell.
 Granny thinks it is much more usable than Gnome 2
 Canonical is embarrasing itself with this split project
 Gnome 3 default shell is much better
 I dislike Unity, Gnome 3 default shell is alien technology!
 None of the above, I like the 2Gb for free and Apple alike behavior. Will post a comment instead
