Exactly! I personally have filed at least 10 or 15 usability bugs
against Launchpad and KDE due to Steven's posts. He is a terrific
insight into the "average joe" because he perpetually stays average.

You can have files in one tab, webpage in another, a PDF open in
another, and then a split pane with an ODF file on one side and a JPG
on the other. Konqueror sure is a nice OS (but I hate the text editor
(emacs swipe)).
