KDE: Friendly for Windows and Mac Switchers

I've found KDE 3 to be very friendly for Windows and Mac switchers. The K Menu very strongly resembles a Start menu, and the taskbar, well, looks like the taskbar. For Mac people, it might be a bit different, although easy to set up. Right-click on the desktop and select "Configure Desktop...", go to Behavior, and check off "Current application's menu bar (Mac OS-style)". Voila! Now, for the Dock. To make the main Panel look like the dock, right-click on the panel, select "Configure Panel..." select a centered screen position and drag the percentage slider down and you have a Mac-y Linux desktop!
