Don't rub it in, I have been a kde user since I first put linux on my desktop
a couple of years ago. I'm having an extended trial under gnome to see if I
can find a usable setup.
So far, I have been unable to do without kmail - can't find another mail
program that supports mailing lists as easily (especially timed purging of
folders), the desktop panel doesn't have the same nice starting up
notification that kde has, I can't put different desktop backgrounds on each
workspace so I can tell at a glance which one I am working in, I miss
konsoles tabbed window selection, and konqueror seems to be the only browser
with an "up" button and a "clear url button" and now this!
To be fair, on the upside - gpdf seems to always display pdf files whereas
kghostview seems sometimes to fail to render the document.
