Usability Test: optimized desktop space

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by trollo321 16 comments

The second screenshot looks pretty cool.

I work with maximized windows most of the time.

About the only time I see people around here working with un-maximised windows, it is because the app in question either won't go max, or looks bad max.

Good point.

In general there are 4 special areas of the screen which are MUCH easier to hit with the mouse - left, right, top, bottom, provided that the relevant GUI controls allow the the edge of the screen to be "hit".

I like the combination of the title bar and the menu bar, saves space and makes the file menu easier to hit.

Might be an idea to leave the taskbar at the bottom though, maybe just make it take up less vertical space. - Sep 06 2004
