第一,�以在KDE3.1-10上使用么?
第二,应该是"登录"而�"登陆"

Translation:
1, can it work with KDE3.1-10?
2, The Chinese word ought to be"登录" not
"登陆"

Do you really have to ask?

Is there anything new on this front? I am really eager to try this piece of software. I think I am pretty close to having my desktop look like XP, but I am still missing the XP panel.
Can you give us a time line?

"the patches is writen for kde-3.2.1 and I will release it later when I update it to kde-3.3.1."
Guess, it is already KDE 3.4.
You should now change your project to look like "Windows vista", AKA Windows Longhorn ;)

Friend, You've done an amazing job of making KDE look like Windows XP. If you can also make Window decoration and style to work with your 'Real KDE XP' Improvement, then Windows XP is no longer needed :).

I would LOVE to try your improvement. And KDE Developers are afraid of criticism if they try to implement anything close to windows. So, I am eagerly waiting for your KDE 3.3+ patch. Wow, I am really astonished!!!

Keep up the courageous work!

Yes, It is kicker. not a picture and not superkaramba
Full Hacked.

I modify system tray a lot, remove clock applet, and make a clock widget in system tray, and add a button to toggle.

I also modify original quick laucher applet and make it works.

The kbutton has also been modified to support pixmap.

the panner has also been modified a lot.

you are right, it is fully hacked kicker.

and the logout dialog is ksmserver. also hacked.

to hack kdm is a easy thing.

He just wanted to show, what's possible to do with kde. nothing more...

But it's *not* possible, unless he *totally* hacked the Kicker code. This is not a theme, this is a hacked screenshot, nothing more, and I have a strong feeling that is all that it'll remain.

What makes you think he's even using Kicker? Ever seen some of these SuperKaramba themes?

Because he specifically says so? ;) And he makes no mention of [Super]Karamba at all?

write viruses
make it slower

Just kidding,
