List night I finally tried out KDE4.  I've been using 3.5 on jaunty
until now.  First thing I did was make Konqueror my file browser, but
it seems dumbed down, just like dolphin.

First thing I see is that there are only 3 views available: icons,
details and columns.  What happened to tree view?  list view?  Photo
album view?  An I missing a configuration somewhere?

Those are the same 3 views dolphin offers.  It dolphin actually
running as a kpart in konq?  Oh dear.
