KBFX is an alternative to the classical K-Menu button and its menu. KBFX project improves the user experience by enabling the user to set a bigger (and thus more visible) start button and by finally replacing the Win95-like K-Menu. But if you still want the old menu, because youre used to it, it is still available as an option in kbfx. We recommend, however, that you give the Spinx bar a try. History: KBFX was started on June 5th 2005 as a hobbyist project by Siraj Razick, born out of a spontanous idea. The reason was that Siraj didnt like the old K-Menu, which was quite a clone of the old Win95 Startmenu. So he started coding. The first step provided merely the possibility to call the K-Menu via a button, that could have a different shape and size than the original K-Menu button, which has always been an icon of a square size. To change the default KBFX button, one still had to copy an image file to a certain location. After the first post in mid-june 05, KBFX has spread rapidly and it was nice to see that until end of june, there were already a dozen posts on kde-look with buttons and builds. Mensur Zahirovic (called Nookie) joined Siraj on 5th of august, after Siraj met him on yahoo. Nookie is responsible for the Web-development and the Q&A. He also arranged the site www.kbfx.org, that replaces the previous site www.linuxlots.com/~siraj/plugin/kde. After that, things began to speed up. The next members were Akhmed Fathonih, who works on the configuration modules, and Ron, who provides distribution packages. KBFX is no longer just another button design for the K-Menu, but now provides an alternative to it, that is in fact more sophisticated than the XP-Startmenu. KBFX version 0.4.9 is a four month long prototypical development Approach. The release is a complete rewrite eliminating all the negative points of previous versions. At the start we had a list of end requirements for version 0.4.9 and we developed each of the feature unit testing it as it was developed. Testing each and every class along the way. Apart from unit testing, the quality assurance manager would periodically check the quality of the product and as new releases are made to the KBFX source repository. QA always check the product against the requirements that we had set to maximize quality. This way of development help us to discover tons of bugs and fix then then and there, and we debut that KBFX has any hidden bugs that cant be fixes. And it was more than helpful to see many users around the world checking out the development release of KBFX from CVS, and reporting and posting problems encountered helping to add more stability and compatibility between distribution. Because of this even before KBFX is 0.4.9 is released we know the supported platforms. KBFX has been tested to work with all GCC3.x and GCC4.x compliers. And also on retributions such as Gentoo, Debian , Ubantu , Suse, Slack, Mango, and Manrake, and Fedora core systems.But compiling on FreeBSD systems is yet to be tested, we will port KBFX to FreeBSD and PcBSD..
