    OS/2 ....

    Those were the days. To go seriously off-topic here: I heard rumors that IBM would open-source OS/2. Did that ever happen?

    no, IBM can't release because M$ worked on it (in partnership with
    IBM) and Redmond still has copyrights in the code that they will NEVER
    release, ever..

    but that is not the same thing as i'm talking about...i'd like to be
    able to NOT shut down KDE, but rather close a work folder (and open
    another), then when reopening it, all the work is laid out ready to
    continue..

    I suppose you could go some way towards it by using KDE4 "activities", folder view plasmoids and KDE4's ability to save its current states: while KDE remains running, so would your various projects, and after a restart most of your working environment would indeed be restored.
