my point of view the way tips are shown through KTip is clearly blocker for 
usability. Or you read tips, or you do what you wanted to do with the 

On Akademy I thought we could make tips be 'parallel' with the application 
usage. The idea is to give short hints to the user.

I did draw a mockup to know what you think. Tips ideally would fade in and out 
while you use the application. With the close button on the right you could 
just hide them.


What do you think ?
