Re: Switching to KDE (was kde or gnome)

Good evening, Claude.

I understand it perfectly! And if the ability to rearrange icons is likely to show up in an early release, I'm perfectly happy. But, such an ability is so basic to just about any desktop that I found it really odd that it wasn't there.

(I'm told that you can sort icons within panels. I haven't figured out how to use panels yet ... and as for the one that comes up by default in a fresh KDE install, I must have clicked on something because it's gone and I haven't yet figured out how to get it back.)

It would have been nice to have the option of reverting to KDE3 in an official, supported way... maybe something like "yum groupremove kde" and "yum groupinstall kde3", until such time as KDE4 becomes more nearly as feature-rich as KDE3 was.

But, no problem, I'll wait...

Could you please do me a favor and point me to some of the websites that explain all of the rationale behind what they did for KDE4? I looked around www.kde.org and didn't really find anything specifically on-point.
