OT. This list has become "Neighbours, The Vollom Years".

If you are leaving any project because of one person, then you need to
learn to use your filters. I don't know what mail client you use, but
few mail clients today cannot filter on sender.

I challenge you to find a list as newbie-friendly as the *buntu lists,
but without their star posters, trolls, or spam.

If you miss Konqueror, then try this:
$ konqueror
What do you know, it does almost everything in KDE 4 that it did in
KDE 3, and some more as well. If anything is missing, then I invite
you to either file a bug, or contact me off list and I will file the
bug. I've filed tens of bugs for other people regarding missing
features in KDE 4, and I'd like to help you as well.

If you are here because you love KDE, that's great. If you are here
because you hate Windows, then you have a chip on your shoulder and
this is not the place for you. You need to talk to someone.
