Hi all,

Just my 2 cents, now running Kubuntu Hardy , fresh install on new computer, 
(after my 15 years old computer passed out) the first three things I did 
were:
1) check wether I could improve resolution of 1920X1080 screen above 800x600
(window opened bigger than screen and had to be moved around to find close "x" 
widget, the systrem would be unusable in the long term)   ...more on another 
thread to come.
2)  Restore my essential "home" files using a "test-bench computer because I 
could not plug in old ide drives on machine with only sata connectors
3) Install a desktop icon to launch konqueror in filebrowser mode, since I 
could not find a way to emulate the konq behaviour of navigation panel linked 
with files and folder pannel in Dolphin.
IMHO Konqueror is a great file manager but not complete? as web browser.
4) Install firefox and Java to have it usable.

Greetings 		Perry
