Yes. This is a good thing.

I'm still waiting to hear what constitutes "so much". Michael is partly
right, I believe - there are no File Size view & Album View (as defaults, at
least). Tree view has been implemented differently, so requires you to turn
on an option in Konqueror settings (In the file manager settings - from
either Dolphin or Konqueror - select "Views", "Details" and check
"expandable folders"). Also, I have a "subversion view" available, because
I installed kdesvn, so other views may be available by installing optional
components - I haven't looked.
