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.
