I have SuSE Linux 9.3. After installing it, I played around with it and launched a little app called "AMOR", which puts a (formerly) cute animated smiley face on your desktop, which moves around and does (formerly) comical stuff.
How the heck to I get rid of it?
Novell has the same problem.
One day a Novell software engineer clicked on Amor in the start menu.
The entire department found it amusing. At first.
But then they encountered the same problem as n4ogl. How to stop it.
To make matters worse it was running on a key development box.
What an embarrassing situation. If it could not be shut down every copy of the next release would have Amor running by default.
After 10 strategy meetings and 2 teleconferences it was decided the best thing to do would be to drop support for KDE.
And now you know the rest of the story...
