Knapp, there was  a long discussion in the kde-user list as far as I
remember, where the pro's and contras has been discussed. I also remember
watching a youtube presentation about dolphin.

I don't mind writing a crappy program for whatever reason they want to, but
putting it into a distro where it has nothing to do and making it default
deserves much more rude language and action than what I'm actually saying

In the discussion it was said finally who's the reason for this - the
kubuntu team. 
Please guys _do_ learn from your mistakes. I accept your apologies in
If they don't read this list, please someone tell them, because I'm
obviously too rude to do so ;-)
