It's funny, for awhile k3b was broken and cursed, so everyone headed off 
to use Brasero. Then it broke and the tide receded back to k3b. It seems 
they trade places in the heart and minds depending on which runs 
reliably at the time, routinely. At least we have the choices!

A good question, IMHO, is ignorance seeking to be overcome. No ~trace~ 
of stupidity there. I salute you sir.

Just checked and to install k3b it drags in nepomuk. Sorry, won't have 
that. You don't need to reference/catalog/database the entire install on 
your machine to burn a simple CD/DVD. It also drags in phonon, and I 
already have alsa and pulse installed, so I hate when they do that, 
adding another sound server to the pile. I have no clue why they just 
can't use pulse and not re-invent the wheel. Scruum. Ric

My father, Victor Moore (Vic) used to say:
"There are two Great Sins in the world...
..the Sin of Ignorance, and the Sin of Stupidity.
Only the former may be overcome." R.I.P. Dad.
