Allthough i know KDE looks diffrent by default, this screenshot doesnt look like a mess to me.

That looks like the Search and Launch activity to me. Not sure why that one is defaulting for you. Next time, click the Search and Launch button in the upper right, choose Activities and then choose the Desktop Activity.

Except in the netbook interface, you don't get the panel at the bottom of the screen, which is why I thought it was more the Search and Launch activity.
