I'd also add, try not to copy Windows anything, or Apple. Linux is Linux unto it's own!

Why do people want it to look like crappy windows and crappy apple???!!! Keep it native Linux!

Long live the penguin!

people like the familiar, so if they use windows/apple then why not emulate that, or make it better. Besides, we all know what windows and mac's look like, what does linux look like?

We got tear-offs!!!! I loved them and I could really impress people coming from Windows. Now that KDE is Win/OSX-related, all tear-offs has been removed.... :(

You're absolutely right, I loved tear-off menus a lot as well, but there gone!

Maybe another KDE4 suggestion, how about it?

How about long live a graphically inspiring Tux. Vista and Apple is full of well designed eye-candy by well paid designers I'm sure. While they have an overall graphically pleasing look I would not want to use them. By choice I use Linux and specifically KDE for many more reasons than that it just came out of the box beautiful. It's up to the Distro and the user to personalize it.
I may on occasion emulate the look of the others but on the other hand in my dual booting days I skinned my windows xp to look like kde as much as possible.

It still tasted bad!!.

I for one as a professional artist do not like the gummy looking little Tux that gets stuck on all things Linux. He doesn't look professional, he does not look like the 21st century even.
PCLinuxOS 2007 is hot looking right now and there are few more distros that are getting it together. KDE-Look has quite a few outstanding contributors. It's the first website I head to before and after work.
Thanks all you KDE candy makers!!!!!
Keep on making.!!

Thank you for the compliment regarding PCLinuxOS 2007. I was part of the Beautification Project and it's nice to see that people are taking notice of the gui updates that were made.

 my opinion

Well, the first look of KDE after a fresh install doesnt look very professional and futuristic to me. It reminds me more of a windows 2000, or 98 look.

There's too much grey , like taskbar, the windows, kicker , kmenu etc..
I skinned my suse linux as vista as well, and not because i like the OS, or to be a "wannebe",but simply because it has a nice design.it looks futuristic.

I also don't like the Tux image on linux, cause it looks a bit childish to me.If u want to convince people to use linux,the first thing they look at is the "look" of the desktop.People want to have it futuristic,fresh, colorfull with modern icons and window decorations.
People want it to look expensive, cause they need to stare to the monitor all day.

I think KDE 4 needs to be very different in the looks and have to get rid of that old "Windows 2000" look

What i forgot to say;

People use linux, because they support the
principle behind it.Open source software and mostly free of charge.And it doesnt matter if u run Gnome, KDE,Enlightment etc.People who use Linux have the full rights to all software, and can use their pc without any restrictions like DRM.
Now that's the power of Linux...
not the looks

And if u want to make it look like another OS, just to feel better and fool people, why not? U copy their look, not the bugs and restrictions, and even if i run a Vista skinned KDE, i can use my pc with a calm heart, cause i know i run Linux...

If KDE want the people to stop imitating the look of other Operating systems, then they should come with a Unique Design that is so modern, so cool and futuristic that windows and apple users want to copy the look of KDE!

i concur, kde should have a look that beats vista and osx and is unique. i mean sure make it glassy or whatever but in a unique way :-)
also i kind of hope for other things in kde4 other than great looks (looks make a great first impression but after that...) such as you know stuff just works without having to go to great lengths and stuff that would be really awesome ... or hardware just works and so on and so forth.

 Linux&KDE vs Windows

 
 by ba0645 on: Feb 7 2007

I think KDE4 should not look like Windows it should look - and of course - function even better. I use Linux at home and on my notebook and like to work with, like the freedom i have in choosing what desktopmanager and look i want ...
but - in the end when i try to convince people to move over to linux there seem to be three reasons why they stick on windows:

1.) Games - they want to play
2.) A cool colorfull look of the system
3.) And easy going when installing new hardware or reconfigure existing one

I think linux has to compete with these opinions.

1.) A lot of good games run only under windows
2.) If you want to have it looking cool and 3D you need Beryl (unstable)
3.) For a lot of things you need closed source drivers to work (Beryl), printer, scanner ... and these are often really hard to install and configure for newbies.

I love Linux and like to spend time in configuring, installing cool things and get them running on my machines and I know working open source drivers for almost everything would be the best. But a lot of people do not have the time AND knowledge to handle this.

I wish KDE4 to be stable, cool in looking with lot of features windows vista can not compete with - and - it would be great to have it combined with functions from beryl. Would help me to convince more people to move over to linux.

I just can't understand how can the Vista style be "better-looking" than OSX. We must have been looking at different Vistas, I believe. However, the "no copying" idea is perfect (either Mic nor Mac). Most Linux users would agree on the fact that many applications for Linux have surpassed those of Win/Mac. I mean, just imagine if the Amarok team decided to copy WMP or iTunes to "innovate"!! That would be a tremendous INVOLUTION! Absolute nonsense. There is no point in looking back (let's be real, they're lagging behind, regardless of popularity) for change. We should look ahead, and, since right now there's nothing/nobody ahead... let's just create. Why not? If overpaid idiots[*] can do it, why can't we? [*] You call that professionals?

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.
