FWIW, I recently had some involvement with this one ...
- KMix has an option to select the orientation, but the tray popup
used to ignore this setting; only the main window would follow it.
- The tray popup used to use vertical orientation, and from the above,
this meant that setting the orientation to horizontal would have no
effect on the popup.
- One of the early KDE 4.8.x releases introduced a change that made
the popup use horizontal orientation, again regardless of the
setting. Immediately we got angry users on #kde who despised this.
- Due to those angry users, I had a look at the code and made the
popup follow the setting. As a result, due to KMix defaulting to
vertical orientation, the popup is back to being vertical by de-
fault in 4.8.3 or so.
Personally, I prefer horizontal orientation, but this is definitely
a matter of preference and there are vocal users who prefer vertical.
