So I installed KDE 3.2 on my SuSE 9 Pro box. In the process I decided to give KDE a try as my preferred desktop environment. This meant using KDE software and I must say that KDE's Konqueror, at least in 3.2, really comes through as a browser.
A more detailed write-up is over here
in an Ars Technica article so maybe someone that hasn't decided to try it out will do so.
Previously I used gnome so the switch to KDE was a hard decision. Originally the switch was going to be for a short period of time; just a kick the tires sort of thing. But after using it for a few weeks it became apparent that this was the desktop I need to spend more time with. This desktop environment is a point and click joy, from installing themes, fonts or even a new and improved splash screen.
Thumbs up to the KDE crew and all those that have helped them.
