The release is a basis for the integration of powerful new technologies that will be included in KDE 4. It has been given the codename 'Knut'." Meanwhile, the KDe HIG team is looking for help with finding applications that violate the (unfinished) KDE HIG.

I tried Dolphin when I heard it was going to be default in KDE4, and I found it to be crippled in comparison to Konqueror's file browser, plus to me it looks horrible - far too much wasted space between icons, etc.

(I've never used nautilus, but I find OSX's Finder unintuitive and very annoying to use.)


Can you expand on what you mean by "better"? I'd agree with "simpler" and maybe "easier"; but to me "better" means something more capable, not less.

I do think it's probably best as the default though, and as long as I can still use Konqueror, I'll be happy.
