I'll skip the passive snarkiness here. Oh wait... :)

the "Desktop" was kinda lame in 4.0. 4.1 includes a folderview plasma widget that will be closer to classic expectations/usage.

nope. The desktop emulation in 4.0 was to emulate each file/folder in your "Desktop" folder as an independent plasma widget (see lame comment above).
besides, hate is such a strong word. chill.

p.s. I hate posts that use the word hate, especially hate responding to posts mentioning hate. .... oops.
