Hi All,

as far as I can see, a problem with Kubuntu 8.04 KDE4 beta has become a fight 
between Dolphin and Konqueror.
I said I had a problem opening a folder in Donlphin but I got also a freeze 
browsing in the Adept graphical program ("Add/Remove Programs" in "new" 
Kmenu, my system is in Italian, so I suppose this is the correct English 
So my question was: will my system be able to support the new Kubuntu version?

On the other hand, this is what I think about the Dolphin vs. Konqueror war:
I think Dolphin needs some improvement, such as a richer context menu (for 
example, the useful command move/copy a file with all the path reachable from 
it), but I also think that their effort is to "split" the file manager from 
the browser.
I don't know if it is for security reasons or for KDE internal organization 
and development (a team dedicated only to Dolphin). But please, not war: I'm 
sure Dolphin will become better and better in file managing, while Konqueror 
will be the best web browser in Kde for the future... ;-) ...so the "local" 
team has been divided from the "Internet" team...
