Description:

"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!

 Spectra?-I Hope Not!

I'll start by introducing my self:
-november 2003(I was 15)-that's about the time I started my computing experience when I had my firt PC(preinstalled with Windows XP of course);Even though I lacked any kind of experience in the PC universe I was never satisfied with my OS;
-late spring '04-I was in a lab at school and the only way to connect to the internet was by booting some strange OS called Knoppix,so I had to boot it;that's how I came to know about Linux(let it be known that as I was bored a lot in class I started clicking mIRC.exe like crazy trying to install it - took me weeks to find out why it didn't work :D )
-summer '04- as I, by then, had enough experience, intuition, and discontent with my then current OS, I installed a GNU/Linux distro on my PC,converting it into an XP/FC2 dual-boot system; several weeks later I only had XP on my PC because my photo cam was Linux incompatible,but a few months later I put my foot down and made it a single-boot system which it still currently is;
-so I've been using GNU/Linux on my desktop for almost 2 years now,right? Now let's see...first it was GNOME..then GNOME and KDE,but GNOME mostly...and now,well, "KDE ONLY!"...so I'm pretty in love with it...
Point is...in Spectra I only see Vista and Msoft standards(more specificaly Xerox standard based) and that's not what I want for future DEs,I want something else! I want innovation! and though it would brake my heart and shatter my desktop experience, if KDE ever comes close to anything like this mockup I will seriously consider switching to another Desktop Environment.

Dude...

Shut up.

You sound like some wannabe elitist.

SHUT
UP.

First of all...you didn't even introduce yourself as you had asked permission to do. You asked but never did.

Who the HELL do you think you are anyway?

SHUT
UP.

Second of all... You don't just start with an OS like WinXP and kick right into Linux and know what you're doing. Quit talking like you do. We old-schoolers are SICK of listening to you up-and-coming, would-be "H4X0R" newbies nowadays talking like you actually KNOW how things work.

SHUT
UP.

So the interface might actually bear some semblance to Windows. KDE ITSELF BEARS SIGNIFICANT SIMILARITY to Windows. By your own logic (IF you can call it that...) you shouldn't even be using KDE if you have THAT big of a problem with anything that looks remotely or systematically similar to Windows.

I am a Linux user myself. But I still have WinXP on my system because, as an EXPERIENCED user (unlike yourself...) I know better than to put all of my eggs in one basket like that. Sometimes it is just more efficient to switch to the WIN32 platform to get certain things done. If you had any real experience...you would know that this goes without saying.

I'm sorry man...but there was just something about your post...that inspired me to sign up an account JUST to tell you...to...

...SHUT
...UP.

Hello there "EXPERIENCED user"! Although your comment seems more like a personal attack, I'll just try to be objective; maybe you're just having a bad day. Then again maybe that's just your "EXPERIENCED" self speeking. Be that as it may, approaches like yours make me sick, but still I'll point out some things:

- I'm not an English speaker, my native language doesn't even resemble English because it's Latin based; I never attended advanced English classes because I didn't need nor afforded it, but still I can express myself so...I'm guessing I'm not as stupid as your comments reflect it, wright :D ?...but hey, that's just a guess,wright ? I mean your description says "Experienced OS user, systems manager, network tech, US Army Telecommunications and network administrator", so you must be wright.

- So you said "the interface might actually bear some semblance to Windows". Yep, you got that one, and I'm sure you know about the Xerox UI and how that came to happen.From what I know almost all DEs are based on Xerox, that being a good explanation as to why they all resemble each other.But hey, all that happened more than 10 years before I had my first PC, and you are an "EXPERIENCED user" and a "systems manager", so you must know better ;).Is it just that I like to do my homework and know what I'm talking about or is your experienced old-schooler self going to say I made it all up about the Xerox UI and how it inspired current desktop standards?

So Cyryl, you still have WinXP on your system because as an "EXPERIENCED user" (unlike myself) you obviously know better than to put all of your eggs in one basket or you're just so stuck with it u can't/won't let it go ? Hell you're wright! "Sometimes it is just more efficient to switch to the WIN32 platform to get certain things done" ...and if all GNU/Linux devs thought that, it would solve everything, wouldn't it :D ? But who the hell do I think I am??? If I had any real experience :( ... but I don't :( , you're the "EXPERIENCED user" here...

Great mentality dude! So when somebody says something that doesn't match your point of view, an "Experienced OS user, systems manager, network tech, US Army Telecommunications and network administrator" like yourself goes around shouting over'n'over again telling them to "SHUT UP!", wright ? Hell you're an experienced old-schooler (unlike myself) so it's OK to talk like that to anyone.

I'm sorry man...but there was just something about your post...that inspired me...to tell you...to seek guidance, maybe some anger management or something to help you calm down and control yourself :) .

...???

Ok. I know about Xerox. I know about that whole fiasco. (LOOK IT UP.)

What I CAN'T understand is...

WHY ARE YOU EVEN TALKING ABOUT IT!?

That is WAY old news. You're the ONLY person I've heard even mention it in the last 6 years!

What the hell does Xerox have to do with anything?

Chide me all you want. You're still an IDIOT.

And YES. It WAS somewhat of a 'personal attack'. One that was made in the hopes that you would...

...SHUT
...UP.

But of course idiots ALWAYS have more to say after being put in their place. *sighs*

You are obviously no exception.

As far as expressing yourself goes... AGAIN I ask you...

WHAT does that have to do with anything!?

Fine. You expressed an opinion about something that you're just learning about. Fine. But if you're going to express an opinion about the KDE desktop and make such adverse comments about someone's work... DON'T CONTRADICT YOUR OWN OPINION. You make no sense.

And no... All "DE's" are NOT based on Xerox. COPY MACHINES are based on Xerox these days. Desktop Environments are based on DESKTOP ENVIRONMENTS. They are based on the needs of the user. They are based on YEARS of trial and error in the pursuit of efficient ways to get work done. NO ONE COMPANY CAN CLAIM THAT CONCEPT because it is far too diverse and likely to be utilized the way it has been. Not Microsoft, Apple, Linux OR Xerox. Xerox just implemented it first. That's all the credit that can be given to them.

I REALLY don't understand why you even mentioned Xerox. You're obviously REALLY behind the times. It's VERY OLD NEWS.

Care to talk about the first gym-sized computer while you're at it?

And yes I DO have WinXP on my system. I simply CAN NOT believe you actually cited me for having that on my system. WOULD-BE ELITIST NEWBIES point their fingers at you for that. I still have it on my system for a HUGE list of reasons. First and foremost there is still far too much that I do that requires software that is developed ONLY for the WIN32 platform. While there may very well be applications to do anything you can think of in Linux...they are almost always in a constant state of rapid development. They change far too often. (Look at Sourceforge for instance.) This means that half of this software - while innovative - is still UNSTABLE. It still requires FAR more time to research, find, match versions THEN download all the required packages, binaries and programming API's or frontends than it would take to just switch to Windows and use something that I know WORKS and will give me the results I want...

...NOW.

And that isn't even including the time it takes to resolve errors such as package dependcies or compile problems.

A computer is there to do what you want it to do. As long as it does it...what does it matter HOW you do it? Linux, Windows, MacOS X... Who cares? If the computer accomplishes the task you give it with satisfactory results then it has ultimately served it's purpose; REGARDLESS of what operating system you have on that system.

So in other words... I will accomplish my objectives and tasks more efficiently and MUCH faster than you EVER would given a certain time frame.

By the time you (succesfully) config, make/compile and then FINALLY install half of the software it would take to rip a DVD and START to rip the DVD...

...I'd already have it halfway ripped. Just because I don't have that STUPID PRIDE that keeps me from switching to what I know WORKS.

On the side I simply look for Linux options and expirement until I find another option that is suitable as a replacement for the WIN32 option.

This is simply a process of progressive migration. It is efficient and UNQUESTIONABLE.

Do you think that I didn't take some of my knowledge and ability to learn Linux from my experience with Windows? You would be wrong to assume that. You still have to give our Windows roots CREDIT. (Even with as much contempt for Microsoft as we may have...)

Also consider that as an administrator/tech...I still need to be able to support several users who are STILL stuck with the WIN32 platform. I need to be able to run the same software that they are using in order to troubleshoot and support it. That is very commonplace in the industry no matter what OS you prefer. Or can you not discern that on your own? It's SIMPLE LOGIC. Aside from that I still need to be able to make sure that the applications that they are using actually DO work in the WIN32 platform. Do you think that I still run WinXP BY CHOICE? You're an IDIOT. I actually have 8 systems here in my office. 3 laptops and 5 desktop systems. 2 of the laptops are running Linux. One of them runs both Linux and WinXP. The desktop systems have a similar ratio.

My server? It's running Windows Server 2003 Enterprise.

"Why?" you may ask? Simple.

The majority of my webserver clients DON'T KNOW how to develop or design for any other web platform aside from Frontpage and it's extensions. The IIS server platform already has all they need incorporated into it. It's simple and it saves me time and money. LOTS OF IT. I run an alternate Linux-based Apache server for those who prefer THAT platform. But most people I host for prefer the simple IIS model. Windows 2003 Server is stable enough that I don't have to concern myself with constant maintenance. Unfortunately Linux would still require more maintenance than I have time for.

Also...unfortunately... You STILL CAN NOT DENY that the WIN32 platform still does certain things BETTER than other operating systems do. It sucks but it's FACT. Just like Linux is more stable than Windows. Anyone who has a clue would know that credit still needs to be given where it is due.

Are you getting this yet? Is any of this soaking in?

You STILL sound like some would-be elitist... Therefore you STILL sound like an IDIOT. I didn't attack you for fun. I OPPOSED your ignorance.

Strongly.

Perhaps too strongly for YOU.

Whatever.

So... I would still like for you and your type...to...

SHUT

UP.

*sighs*

But it'll never happen. You'll continue talking. You'll continue taking a one-sided, narrow-minded stance on your opinion and downgrade the work of someone who JUST MIGHT BE INNOVATING. You'll still respond with IGNORANCE and irrelevant commentary.

I STILL don't know what the hell Xerox has to do with anything or why you mentioned it.

But please... DON'T try to explain it. I really don't want to know. It's IRRELEVANT.

I'm just ASTOUNDED at just exactly HOW IRRELEVANT it really is.

At any rate... I have things needing done and I'm going to do them...

...in whatever platform works BEST for what I'm doing...

...whether you like it OR NOT.

Oh my god. C'mon guys. First of ass, desso, sorry to say this, but most people really don't care for you to introduce yourself.
Cyryl, your response exposed yourself as a total moron. You can just as well order yourself to stfu. You can't make anyone do anything. Believe me. As for the concept of "Spectra", I must say: too many changes.
Ah, and THAT would be reaaaaly bloated.

transparancy like this is always nice when you can see the background. But most of the time other windows are behind a current one. This way it get REALLY unusable.

Transparancy is good for:
*Menues
*konsole/yakuake
*inactive windows
*taskbar/kicker
*window decoration

I wouldn't like it standard in konqueror.
The idea about the icons is nice though.

Well, transparant menu, yakuake, konsole is all nice indeed. But i'd say just NO transparant konqueror without hardware accaleration and real tranparancy, otherwise it would become really ugly. (Same with win deco's in my opinion)

I have used translucency effect.
Only the "info-bar cum menu-bar" and the window decoration are translucent.
The info-bar on the top is translucent and not transparent. ....
Even if other windows are behind the application instead of the wallpaper directly being visible, the info-bar cum menu-bar is translucent enough to clearly present the contents.

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
