Re: deb-ppc: recommended browser and email client ?

Well, these are purely religious issues and you are as likely to get a 
consensus as a politician is to be honest. Personally, I use mh/exmh as my 
mailer; mh is *the* most powerful mail engine there is, and exmh is a nice GUI 
front-end to it (mh is command-line based). Possibly when Nautilus gets up and 
running I'll try that, but it'll have to go a long way to beat mh.

Mozilla is, for me, *just* too unstable to use. Possibly when M16 comes out 
I'll be able to switch. For now, I'm sticking with Netscape.

Mozilla and Communicator *5*, yes. The common Netscape you get for Linux is 
Communicator *4*.

Alternatively, I'm hearing good things about the KDE2 beta of Konqueror. Unfortunately I haven't been able to get it working on my (Intel) machine. Anyone know where there's a site with reasonably up-to-date KDE debs?
