Sounds like KDE 4 indeed, especially the "icons in the box" part.

KDE 4.2 is coming soon, where you will be able to configure things to have
the icon viewer ("folder view") as the main desktop. But the folder view
box (applet) does its job as well.

As for quick launch icons, just right-click and "Add to panel" in the
Kickoff menu, or drag&drop the menu entry to the panel in the classic menu.
(You can right-click on the menu button and use "Switch to Classic menu
style" to switch to the good old classic menu.)

You can do that, but I'm sure KDE 4 _can_ be set up to your liking. :-)
