When Dolphin first appeared I was still new enough to Linux in general 
that I started using it right off the bat. I quite like it. IMHO, some 
of the earlier versions had a few things that I like better than some of 
the newer versions. But the bottom line is that with Dolphin I can do 
anything you need done with a file/folder manager. Whether it be on the 
different drives of my own machine or across our home network. Dolphin 
is a good tool. But like any good tool you have to learn how to use it. 
I never had to "un-learn" Konqueror because I used Dolphin from the start.

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
