"One problem I've had with KDE 4.0, 4.1 and 4.2 was the braindead way that the application icons were sorted on the Kickoff menu. Having the application icons sorted by description rather than the name of the program was very difficult to follow. (Instead of looking for "Firefox" to launch your web browser for example, you would instead look for it under "Web Browser"). I'm happy to announce that after I have bugged the KDE developers about this issue and mentioned the problem in countless articles and reviews, there is finally a way to configure the menu to sort the applications by name. Hallelujah! It may sound like a small thing to be excited about, however if you've used KDE 4 you probably already know what I'm talking about and how annoying it was."
