Not yet. I have downloaded several tutorials on KDE4 that appear to be 
genuine tutorials rather than air, but have not yet had time to read 
them. Like many others. there are many real Activities in my life; I am 
constantly feeling that I am falling behind in some of those that I HAVE 
to do, and (you are quite right) I haven't had time to learn the ins and 
outs of KDE4. It is possible that I never will have time. One might wish 
that the KDE team would consider that many others also have similar 
limitations. I envy those that don't.

I'm sure that KDE4 will go through many iterations before it settles down 
as a usable system. Thus this is not the last time in its evolution that 
users will have to devote much time and energy to keeping track of its 
ever-changing complexion. Personally, I wish that it could have been 
developed longer before being thrust upon users, many of whom seem to be 
much more interested in using their equipment for their corner of the 
world's work, rather than being a running Beta bench for The Future.

Thank you. I will surely add these URLs to my list of things to read.
