    Very slick.

    How did you get your desktop to be like that? Is that default?

    Jony, it's kde4.4 rc2
    then selecet search and launch from the options for desktop containment, prior to this we just had folder view and plain desktop.

    Funny, cause mine doesn't look like that at all.
    I'm running; p, li { white-space: pre-wrap; } Platform Version 4.4.60 (KDE 4.4.60 (KDE 4.5 >= 20100120)) "release 3"

    I thought the future was still to come..... Very nice

    @Jonathan: you're running packages from UNSTABLE, Caf has them from KDE4:Factory, that's where the difference may be.

    @Caf: Are you running KWin compositing effects under VBox? I have been trying to get those working for some time now and I can't get them to work. I just noticed the fade animations in you video.

    The search and launch containment is coming along quite nicely, to be sure. Unfortunately my only netbook has a cracked screen right now so I can't try it out in it' natural environment.

    This is a real install. I mentioned VBox because I have a VM of OS 11.2 with kde4 Unstable which was mentioned is this discussion. But I don't usually bother with effect in VBox.

    But what you see here is using kwin but not in VBox.

    Carl, is it kdenlive for capturing desktop. I used it once to capture desktop and it bring my system on knees. Was extremely slow. The video was not good because of the late mouse movements.
