Great minds... I just ripped KDE completely removed from my system. 
Gone. I installed XFCE and now have it pretty much confgured the way I 
want it. All I ever wanted was to mouse to a screen edge and pop into 
the next workspace. Without having to use compiz.

Well, just maybe I think KDE could give you the freeping choice to use 
it's integration. But, they don't, so I disagree with them, and after 
years of using KDE finally ditched it... I pushed more red buttons than 
I like to, in the process. Synaptic almost had an heart attack.

Craig, I did a google search and PLENTY of people bitch about having a 
function foisted on them that they don't want since 2009. Besides, most 
of what they push onto people has become useless cruft when google and 
their likes offer a universal interface for calendars and address books. 
I'm afraid they just aren't "relevant" any more, when they won't let you 
turn off stuff you don't use. That's pretty dictatorial


Heh, so my computer WAS evil, but I'm still mean. KDE = GONE. I feel SO 
GOOD! As I wrote a friend "I feel like I just had sex with the entire 
Luxembourg Women's Soccer League and was looking for more."
