I like the idea but you may also want to get kde-usability involved.  I think 
the X button should be more clear as to its purpose (i.e. does this close the 
widget now and it pops up next time, or is it gone for all time?).  One way I 
can think of is to add a "Don't show tips" button (which would make the X 
button a temporary close) but I'm sure there's better ways.

Also, I get the impression it would be distracting to be trying to work with 
an animated widget, it may be better to add arrow buttons and make the 
transitions occur manually.
