The "beauty of free software" is also that we get to have discussions like 
this. I don't know how representative of a sample the users on this mailing 
list are, but it seems that the verdict on Dolphin is overwhelmingly 
negative. If that is the case, I think "why is KDE defaulting to Dolphin when 
there has been no user outcry for it and quite a bit of backlash against it" 
is a totally fair question.
