Stefan is Doing Great work with KDE.

Im am absolutley not trying to discurage him.
merely offering comments to "improve the product"

As anyone that has done large programming projects know,
It is impossible to test everything.

To be generally  useful any software needs to be installed
on lots of machines and tested and evaluated.

this mailing list is the forum to diskuss and sugesst
changes and additions to the software.

Dont interpret these comments as a flame-war.
