I presume by that you mean widgets. Personally I think they're an
intrinsically bad idea that typifies what's wrong with KDE4. They look
great in screen-shots and youtube, but it astonishes me that anyone
wants active desktop components underneath application windows. 

If you put aside silly features like widgets and 3-d affect, I don't see
anything that makes plasma a  "fuller-featured desktop".
