Context-Sidebar

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by rabauke 14 comments

the gnome folks already started work on something like this:

http://www.nat.org/dashboard/

the dashboard is a context-sensitive sidebar which displays information. i think they did not implement your idea of adding program controls to it, though. here is a kde.org discussion about it.

now, for kde, we have an advantage and a disadvantage in context to gnome - our problem is that, unlike gnome, kde isn't much for metadata currently. our advantage is dcop - if every program would release all the needed info via dcop, writing such a sidebar would actually be quite easy. - Aug 21 2004

amarok is sleek, sexy, fun, has a great interface, and sent my rhythmbox-using gnome-loving friends crying ;) thank you for this wonderful tool! - Aug 16 2004
