Kickoff-qt on Kubuntu 7.04

Various KDE 1.-4. Improvements by Ruffinius 79 comments

For Ruffinius:
Nope, M$ is not the only source of original things, and yes - they do copy lots of things, I believe.

Apologies for my mis-spelled / mis-used / wrong words, however that is not the issue.

For-what-its-worth (tm someone) I think your screenshots are really cool and pleases the eye but still, its a imitation / plagiate of aero. Graphical appearence of Kickoff for kubuntu is too similar to aero.

Please don't excuse yourself by saying that MS will copy / imitate linux by not having GUI in servers?! Thats so far fetched.

You must have done lots of work for this and you have done good work, keep it up. Remember though that it is easy to take already completed thing and modify something to resemble it than to create something completely new.

don't take critique so hard, try to embrace it and learn from it.

For rufsketch1:
kbfx was started in june 2005, aero was first time introduced to world in press on july 2005 (aero information taken from wikipedia, is or isnot correct date). So I don't believe on those basis that M$ ripped OS.

Looking at the screenshots clarifies the fact that M$ community accuses opensource folks of plagiation.

Its so sad that Vista interface is copied so shamelessly... I hope someone could someday invent something new in opensource community instead of just copying cool stuff from M$. - May 28 2007
