I'm still not believing this is real. If he had actual code, why would he only have a screenshot? *Very* little has changed with Kicker code from 3.2.1 to 3.3.1. Go and do a diff yourself, but here is the diff between 3.2.2 and 3.3.0:

# diff kdebase-3.2.2/kicker/core/kicker.cpp \
> kdebase-3.3.0/kicker/core/kicker.cpp
148c148
< // the item under the cursor gets selected. The single shot

> { return MAX_ICON_DIMENSION;}
>
>
> int Kicker::iconMargin(int iconDim) const
> { return iconDim/16; }
>
> bool Kicker::conserveSpace() const
> { return true;}

So, until I see actual code, I'm going to call BS on this. Maybe it's for real, but at the moment, I doubt it.

but i dont think this qaualifies as a kde "improvement" :p

i htink the coolest thing about kde is that you can make it look exactly like windows xp or exactly like OSX. in windows, you can only do osx, and with osx, you cant do shit.

I call bullshit on you nuka! have you even looked?

and here's some more:

as for the above theme itself... well I don't find XP really that good looking. I'm not sure why everyone is so desperate to make their linux boxes look JUST like OSX or XP boxes.

He clearly says in the first sentence, that it's only a screenshot! So no reason to complain...

I realy don't like the WinXP look&feel, but I find it cool, that it's possible to make it look so authentic with KDE.

Good job for a 0.1 version!

That's because it's an edited image, not the real Kicker, nor even a modified Kicker.

And what he'd like to do would take a pretty huge editing of the Kicker code to even accomplish, since there is no current way to make an applet hide itself. Maybe a nifty feature, but making Kicker act like a WinXP taskbar would not be an improvement in my books, since Kicker already pretty much outshines WinXP taskbar.

I wish him luck, but he won't be able to do this with themeing alone. Until there is some actual code, I'll rate this with CherryOS. ;)

So you rewrote kicker to make it look+feel like the windows taskbar? Why don't you publish the stuff rather than uploading an image only? At least the tray-icon-hiding feature is something that's really needed since there are way too many apps with a tray icon ;)

... why would I want an XP theme? Especially with the blue-green Luna theme, which reminds me of lame M$ users who don't even know how to change the default theme!
Maybe you should use your talent to do something more tux-like.

Does your style supports the XP "Unofficial" Royal theme from media center?
