recent documents menu

How could I add a Recent Documents list to my launch menu (start menu? K menu?), which it doesn't have? The Windows start menu has one, and I miss its presence in Linux.

If you're using Gnome, there is one by default in the "Places" menu. I don't know about KDE though...

KDE has this feature, but whether you see it or not depends on the default configuration of the distro. To see it in the menu do Kcontrol -> Desktop -> Panels -> Menus -> Optional Menus -> tick on "Recent Documents".
