I felt the same way initially. However, I'm not old enough yet, to remember I can get used to things and now that I have, it doesn't bother me and at times it's convenient (f.e. when repositioning windows). Still, it's easy to turn off. I'm also using the "Flip Switch" to alt-tab windows, which is much more pleasant then having to read sometimes missing window titles/icons in a list. I can definitely do without Kontact's aggregation of message lists, other then that, after tweaking it, can't say that I miss KDE 3, even though I had the initial shocker you experienced. I also did a fair amount of tweaking after the first KDE3 install and I can't honestly remember if I took longer then or now. -- Mel _______________________________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org mailing list http://lists.freebsd.org/mailman/listinfo/freebsd-questions To unsubscribe, send any mail to "freebsd-questions-unsubscr...@freebsd.org"
