yes. instead of having a full popup dialog on the screen running as a separate 
application (all for one dialog? zoinks!), i'd like to use the "welcome to 
kde" plasmoid that will sit on your desktop near the upper right area to show 
little tips. you'll be able to page through them just like now and all that 
jazz. it just won't be it's own app and a dialog window.

everyone hates popup ads on the net, but we've continued to ship ktip. the 
irony is delicious =))
