Tyrer is right..........more silly eye-candy isn't going to get business users to consider
windows and trying out KDE. A good, stable, reliable platform that does all of the basics well
does however, does have a chance at ousting windows.
Konqueror (in my opinion) is the best-designed browser in existence as far as being able to really
as a tool for organizing your web activity (and I'm really looking forward to the tabbed browsing
enhancement). But it still crashes on a lot of sites and fails to render a lot of pages. A
browsers fundamental job is to render pages.....let's get that right first. And why is Opera so
Let's get KDE rock-solid before we spend time writing more pretty toy crap.
One exception: Anti-aliasing NEEDS to work reliably AND pervasively. An anti-aliased desktop is a
lot easier on the eyes if done correctly (Apple figured that out a long time ago). I'm sick of
having to recompile something everytime I upgrade KDE in order to get AA working again.
Yes, I'm a geek and I can usually get things working because I'm careful and I read the docs. But
if we ever hope than regular people will use KDE, a lot of cleaning up needs to be done.
