Wish list: 10 improvements for KDE 4.2

Polish. Little things like being able to change the font size on the time and seeing the date/day as a tooltip, adding launchers to a panel (how do you do this?), choosing a font color that actually allows an application dragged onto the desktop (not intuitive in itself) to be read by humans with a dark background, why must it show that menu so quickly for EVERY plasmoid (even the launchers), adding a system monitor that can monitor network traffic/memory/CPU for the panel, move the items in the panel with middle-click + drag, etc.

Also, it would be really nice if the developers could introduce an option for interacting with the desktop as a folder (the whole thing) with icons.

KDE 4 seems like it's got some promise to be a good desktop environment though. Some of the settings management involving the internet and single clicks really is very well done. In my opinion it is the initial phase of how do I do stuff with my new desktop that is the most putting off.
