Tasty Menu is a KMenu replacement aiming to provide the maximum usability, or
at least to be a testbed for usability concepts and ideas for a future KMenu
The left part of the menu is very similar to the Novell idea
(http://www.novell.com/products/desktop/preview.html); you have a search box
that is always selected when the menu is opened (the search results are
displayed in the leftmost listview), followed by a combobox that decides what
appears in the following listview: favorite applications (default), most used
applications, recently used applications or recent documents.
The right part contains the whole KMenu and takes the aspect from KBFX
(http://www.kbfx.org); the middle column contains the top level categorization
(plus in the current KMenu arrangment the Control Center, Home
folder and Find Files, but I think only categories should be present).
and the left-most listview contains the content of the category currently
selected in the middle column. I think in this way even if it has the same
number of items it "appears" less huge than with a popup menu/submenu
Every item has two rows, for the name and for the description, in order to
make it more informative. On each selected item an action icon appears
on the right; at the moment they are "add bookmark" on application icons and
"remove bookmark" on favorite apps list.
The bottom buttons are the usual switch user, lock session and logout. At first
I didn't want to put them, I thought that
these functions should be delegated to another applet (like
http://kde-apps.org/content/show.php?content=26150), but it seems that this
doesn't work very well in practice.
The left-most button contains the user name and icon, and clicking on it
opens the Profile Editor. I know it seems silly, but it's only an experiment,
probably it will be merged with the switch user button.
