Recommended reading

Plasma explores new ideas in user interface design, to allow users to interact with all aspects of their digital lives in an intuitive and enabling manner.

Such a design goal is quite different from what used to drive open source development for graphical user interfaces. To cope with the new requirements of such a bold endeavour this little list of recommended reading can hopefully act as support to the aspiring plasmodian.


This is an excellent book by Jef Raskin on user interface design. Among other things he describes a zooming user interface, similar to what will appear in Plasma.

This is actually Jef's son. Very interesting video.

Qicksilver's author talking about Quicksilver. But if you listen closely, you can also hear him talk about krunners future between the lines.

Don Norman talking about the return of the CLI. Again very interesting to understand the potential role of krunner in plasma.
