10 That the KDE dev team think the new launcher is good... why not... but please make it so we can keep this one, that (lets be honest) is way better,as a default choice

10 I think it's quite telling that even weeks after the release, people rate the legacy version with 8-10 and mourn the old version. I emailed back and forth with the developers, asking them to change the design back to the old version as it's MUCH better than the new one - heck, even Win10's menu is nicer than this one!
Unfortunately, I was told to install the - not maintained! - legacy version and basically forgo all the bugfixes and all that. That's not cool!
How about we start a petition to go back to the old design as it was MUCH more convenient to use, and so many people miss it.
Looking forward to your thoughts!

9 usability saver, cant still replace this after getting used to it for so long. my only suggestion is that you make it possible to use "super" key alone to invoke it(hotkery). right now it accepts only key combos

10 The new 5.21 application launcher is probably easier to use and more familiar for a lot of people, but this one is all I need: a favorites list (which I'm able to quickly navigate using the arrow keys!) and a search field. The last time I started an application by clicking through menus was in the windows xp days.

7 After installing the plasmoid, all inscriptions are in English only. Are other languages available?
P.S. Plasma 5.21 - disappointment. Unauthorized change of the menu on my system, blurry icons in the tray when the panel height is less than 28 ... Sadness.

10 Add again the ergonomic kickoff launcher.
Remark about the new design:
Not so nice is that the new launcher is replacing the old one without any question!
On a new installed OS, the new design as default is OK. But replacing it will be a breach of the SW ergonomic law and is absolute forbidden and will cause to a big trouble if you have real customers!

At least in German Version, after installation via
$ plasmapkg2 -i kickoff-legacy-1.0.0.plasmoid
there was two entries afterwords with the same name "Anwendungs-Starter" in the menue. Is it possible to change or add the name "legacy"?

10 The 5.20 KDE KickOff.

With 5.21 it will be redesigned, for everyone used to this one it will be a welcomed lifeline.

Everyone pre 5.20 no need for this one
