"KDE Spectra" is my idea of how the next generation KDE should look like.
I am introducing a new concept which I am calling as "Context Tool Bar".
I have also included an idea wherein selected files should have an "open-with-this-app" buttons. For example, mp3 or audio file icons can have the xmms or noatun icons on them when selected. Then just press the corresponding app's button to open that file with that app.
I have created the folder icon.
I hope you like it!

btw: running your desktop as root...seems like a bad idea.

One bug in one stupid application and some bad people get acces to the WHOLE system :-)

offcourse it is just a mockup...but still..

I'd like to point out that this was a mockup of a kde look and not of kde(or for that matter unix) security policies. I guess acute perception is what it takes for picking up miniscule (BUT IMPORTANT) details from such a lovely mock up.

As for the mockup itself, I think its a brilliant concept...

I like the total look of your idea, it would sure change the face of Konqueror and for the better I think. Keep up the good work.

I hate to say it but its bloated, and definatly hack and slash of vista, just my opinion but my experiences with vista is not a good one I still enjoy doing most my work in the konsole, I like eye candy but there needs to be a middle ground with straight and to the point

I could not have said it better! Not only is it visually bloated, but bloated with features and information, just looking at it to much is going on.

Well for me placing the information bar at upperscreen is better than place it at the side. For the folder that wrapped with blue thing, is better at mouse hover

 Terribly Bloated

Thanks for putting your effort in designing a new konqueror style/concept. But to be honest with you, your design does not make anything easier for the user. As 18volt and horseshoe already said, it's bloated, there's simply too much available right away that you use on maybe every 1000th file you deal with. That's what we invented menus for, and to me it looks like you designed the menus to be a part of the konqueror window, which means that it resizes it whenever you open a menu. I personally would find that very annoying.
Secondly, amaroK or any other music player has nothing to do with a file manager. Why? Because putting it in Konqueror will show it with every instance you have, so if you have 10 konqi windows open, you have 10 music player controls open.. what a waste of space.

The only thing I like is the little search toolbar.

LinuKs. KDE. Kool.

 Too busy

I must agree with the other comments. First off, fantastic mockup work :)

Now, regarding the concept, the interface you're proposing is visually too busy for me. A GUI should make sense when you look at it... too many buttons and the users will easily get confused.

What is the meaning of clicking one of the "folder buttons" when you have a active selection of folders? Do we still have a context menu or does it go away? If we still have the context menu then why replicate the functionality? What happens if I want to define new actions, will this result in additional buttons under the folder? What if I have 10 such actions... the list goes on.

I personally like simple interfaces, intuitive, uncluttered. There is a tendency in KDE to swamp the user with options where frankly I end up using only a tiny fraciton of what is offered to me. Advanced options are still needed (which is what I like about KDE) but not by default. The concept may appeal to some and could be included, but please, not by default... I personally would want this to be turned off...
Therefore I'm afraid I need to give thumbs down for this idea.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
