Description:

"KDE Spectra" is my idea of how the next generation KDE should look like.

This one is still better.

This is a concept of a horizontal, smart and file-browser-like "K Menu" never seen before.
This menu should work just like normal menu, that is, select the items just by
hovering over them, this will ensure that there is no need to click until you reach your item. But there should be an option to make the items behave like buttons, that is, file-browser like behaviour.

This menu will give KDE its own unique style.

 usable

I think it can be very usable
But can you please also make a mockup about the Kmenu structure itself. How will the apps be represented.

I think this mockup/design has a GREAT potential, Information can be stored very user-friendly.

It seems like a yakuake way of menu to me.
Using the whole width of the desktop is good, and some transparancy effects are really in its place.

If none have started coding on this within a month, I will probably give it a shot. (first I have to do exams)

 mouse movement

Have you actually looked at how much people would have to move their mouse just to change some sort of "setting"?
Imagine how pissed people with laptops would be?
Also, when you have a decent screen resolution it is even more mouse movement.
It will take much longer time to open an app.

Actually mouse movement would be the same or less. You get rid of the whole control center, so that's one less click and less movement -> from menu to control center. Now when you click on the icon for the settings you want to change your mouse is already halfway or further into the desktop. You don't need to move it from the corner of the screen to the app again. It's already there. Not that I'm saying this menu is a great idea, but the mouse movement argument just doesn't hold up.

I say give it a chance, let some one code something like this up as a plugin. KDE4 is going to be very extensible, things like the menu aren't going to be so etched in stone. If this doesn't suit you then you still have "Crusty-Old-Guy-Menu-20th-Century" to fall back on.

 nice

I like the idea!
I think a Menu where you need to click to enter submenu is far more usable then one with mouseover! Thats the idea kbfx uses,too. The bad thing with kbfx is that you only have entries in each kategory, not submenus!
I think the time you need with this mockup for moving the mouse is the same as finding an app in KMenu with its tight entries with Mini-Icons!. This menu could also get integrated as menu for the kde-apps, e.g. kword, konqueror, or so.

But nevertheless an option would be good where you can set the size of the K-Menu, thats a thing any Menu (actual K-Menu, kbfx-spinx) is missing.

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.
