[kde-linux] State of Konqueror: my 2 cents

I've loved Konq ever since it was introduced and I think it is the best 
application ever created for any OS ever. Period. I keep it running all the 
time. It's the ultimate file manager/browser. And I operate from a file or 
document centric approach wherein the computer is just a database/server - I 
don't want to see apps, I want to see functionality. I love extreme 
configurability and dream of a system where there's no standard desktop look 
and feel - it's all left up to the user. But I understand why so many people 
might find it confusing because of the way they interact with a computer, 
especially if they recently came from the Windows/corporate world. It saddens 
me that it might not be developed anymore. I'm sure that some of its minor 
problems can be fixed and new features added and made more intuitive. It 
suffers from the main problem of *NIX systems: configurability and 
flexibility, leading to incredible power. This should be a problem? I'll take 
more like it. 

This message has traveled almost the distance to the moon!
