Rectangular KDE start/menu button

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by speleoalex 47 comments

I remember Sun did a usability test on Gnome, asking testers to tell icons' functions without touching them. Only the ones with Windows experience could guess out the big foot was "start programms". I'm sure it would be the same in KDE, if you ask a newbie what does "K" do.

In fact, in windows the text "start" not only hints the function of the button, but also makes it easier for user to click on.

There are some details in Windows that we might not notice. For example, the quick launch buttons, when you push on them, the background turns darking to give you a feedback, so that you will reduce the pressure on your mouse.

What I'm trying to say is that we need to do things with reasons, not just "like" or "dislike". Yes, we are not going to build another Windows, but a more friendly and comfortable windows manager for sure. - Apr 20 2004
Question... Is this possible?

I think it's simply a long patten bar with lighter color in the middle and darker on sides (probably 1600 pixels long), and the backgound alignment is set to middle. - Jun 08 2003

That's great! I think it'll look even better if u can change the font size to a smaller one. - Feb 10 2003
