    You mean the taskbar/start menus? or general programs?

    if it is taskbar/start menu, take a look in the KDE control center -> Desktop -> Panels -> Appearance.

    if it is general programs, then I don't know of any way to do them in KDE, however with Xgl and Gnome it is possible.
    Life is complex, it has a real part and an imaginary part.

    Found it.. instead of Panels, go into Windows behavior - Translucency

    Transparent and tranluency is not only Xgl can do it. Its also Composite effect. You should start from early to enable it, where you need to add some lines in your xorg.conf file. You can get the guide from gentoo wiki pages.
