Qt After many months of designing, coding, reviewing, testing and documenting, Qt 4.7.0 is finally ready for the big time. Although it's a little more than nine months since Qt's last feature release (4.6.0 on December 1, 2009), the seeds of some of the new stuff in 4.7 were sown much earlier. Indeed, many of the ideas behind the biggest new feature in Qt 4.7.0, Qt Quick, were born more than two years ago, not long after Qt 4.4 was released

You no longer use Linux because one desktop (which is not even the main desktop for that distribution) changed the default browser?

My, yor smart, aintchya.

BTW, it is dead easy to un-install the browser and change the default, and you are given a choice of at least four fine, free, freedom browsers that you can install. You don't even need a browser installed in order to be able to install another.


Are you seriously too blind too realize that the post is not about rekonq specifically but about the ever present attitude amongst linux developers thinking that putting alpha quality software as the default is a good idea?

Things like PulseAudio, rekonq and oss graphics drivers are introduced as the defaults before they are ready and then people wonder why average people can't get their computer working properly or find linux hard to use. This incessant "it will work eventually" attitude might work in an imaginary ideal world, but here in the real world, people have shit they need to do on their computers, today. Not in three years when your new fangled software finally reaches maturity, but today.
