This is a problem even on ordinary laptops.  1280 by 800 is not
uncommon, nor are similar low-height resolutions on desktop systems.
I've come across a few applications that are too tall to comfortably
use.  Yo-yoing up and down is not a nice thing to have to do.

I'd say the same about KDE.  There seems to be too much shovelling in of
features into the desktop, whereas a simpler desktop and optional
add-ons where you want those features, may be better.

e.g. Nautilus is useless as a file manager, it's just a file browser.
I'd get rid of it, but it's a part of the whole desktop.  Like the
engine behind MSIE is also the Windows desktop.  A problem in it, is an
unavoidable problem with everything else.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r
