Yup, laziness is a virtue
If you don’t think being lazy is a virtue I hope I can convince you the opposite. It turns out that if you read some of KPackageKit posts you might have read that I started coding it because of a feature I wanted to add to KDE, and no, that wasn’t KPackageKit itself.
It turns out that before I started to code it I was thinking on how could I make KDE package management experience nicer. At that time I normally used KPackage to manage my packages, and I realized that I mostly never opened KPackage to remove my unused applications.
Removing applications is a hard task first you need to know which applications do you have, then you need to know which ones you don’t use, and at the end open the package manage browse for them and remove them.
But about what time do you remember an application is not used? When you see it’s icon right on your face! And when it’s that? When you open our lovely Kickoff
If you are still wondering what this has to do with laziness, I’ll tell you everything! If I wasn’t lazy enough to memorize the unused apps and go to the package manager I wouldn’t been writing KPackageKit on the first place!
So yes, as you can see from the screen shot below now we can uninstall applications from Kickoff!
The code went to review board, Aaron Seigo rapidly reviewed it, and now on KDE 4.7 you will have it available
Hope you all enjoy it
