You can always switch between workspaces with one click. KDE provides stunning 3D effects which makes desktop more beautiful and fun.

All the applications are categorised by genre, so it makes you easy to find the apps that better suits your next task.
Shelf (Panel Widget)
The shelf is a shortcut widget that helps you to access frequently visited place quickly and easily. With the help of search toolbar at the top you can easily search for an application, services, files and folders.
The combination of Alt+F2 keys is very useful. You can see the pop-up on the top of the screen. Type description of the App you want. It will automatically display a short list of quickly launch application. It will also find files and folders of relevant description you type. You will also have spell checker and search Wikipedia.

Apper Manager Software allows you to download and install newest packages from the official Debian or any appropriate third party repositories. The apper manager has a huge collection of software packages which are divided into categories to make you easier to search files by name and description using filter bar.
KWheezy OS is an attractive spin of Debian. I surely recommend KWheezy for users who are new to Linux World or those who want to give a try Debian the easier way. As I said above, KWheezy bundled with huge collection of applications which provides out of the box experience to users and makes it a decent choice for newbies.
KWheezy is perfect for those users who like to have lots of application, but if you would like to have custom created applications list and a pleasant system, then go for Debian 7 Wheezy KDE.
