What the KDE netbook desktop looks like
The KDE netbook desktop is built on a completely different concept to the standard desktop. The screen is divided into four sections. At the top is a panel, with status and control icons and workspace selection. Immediately below that is a quick-launch area, where the most commonly-used programs can be easily added and started with a single click. In the centre of the screen is a search area, where applications, utilities, bookmarks and contacts can be found by entering key terms. The lower half of the screen is the graphical menu area, containing all the applications and utilities.
