You are of course right. Like I have previously stated, I prefer KDE,
but what is right for me is not right for everyone else. That is why
there are so many things to choose from. I am not pushing KDE, or any
other DE on anyone, I only state my opinions. I have to say, I spend
more time with Konsole than I do anything else, and I could probably do
with just about any WM just as well as I do with KDE, or perhaps I
should just dump all WMs and use mutt and links. Whatever I decide, it
is my choice. The freedom to take these decisions is the strong point
This of course is not appropriate to this thread, so I will stop
preaching how pleased I am that I got out of the Windows world.
