The kde-sig is seeking feedback on f16's plasma-desktop (and
other containments) default layout.
In particular, prior to kde-4.7.x, the default was basically an empty
desktop with a sole folderview widget. Now in kde47, the default is
even emptier, without even folderview.
So, we were close to deciding simply putting a folderview back as
default, but I thought we could brainstorm for even better ideas. What
do you all think?
Not having a facebook account, I can't read that. My own opinion is that if
you don't want a folderview it's simple to delete it, whereas if the desktop
is empty and you do want one it's less obvious how to get one - for someone
new to plasma, I mean. Of course that doesn't allow for those that want the
desktop to *be* a folderview :-) but that's another story.
