Oh, I was simply presenting the way they would look with or without an image.

Like already stated by someone else the photos take up more room then the 
current kde listings.  When you don't have an image simply listing the name 
would be best.  (esspecialy for applications that don't include any photos)

Hmmm very true.  Along the lines of the KDEAbout, why is there an application 
Help button in the KDE help dialog?  Kinda an odd place.  Either way adding a 
line on the bottom along with a button would be a good idea.
