KDE In the transition from KDE 3 to KDE 4, a new file manager, Dolphin, was often discussed and now officially moved to the base part of KDE. "I just stumbled over this message saying that the file manager Dolphin is now part of kdebase (of KDE 4): 'Moving Dolphin to kdebase, as discussed with Peter and others. The big plan is: Dolphin will become the default file manager (kicker buttons and file:/ links bring it up).' The question remains what now happens with Konqueror - keep in mind that one of the goals of KDE 4 was to only keep one app for each task inside the base packages. But with Dolphin as the potentially new file manager and Webkit as the new browser we may see Konqueror vanish."

So then isn't this breaking the 1 application per task?

It seems once again my menu will have numerous items for the same task...

That is one application per task by default. There will always be numerous apps to do a given task, but you have the option to install them or not.

No, Konqueror will be used as default webbrowser, Dolphin for filebrowsing. But Konqi won't lose it's power and you can still use it for filebrowsing (with the Dolphin Kpart) and even use it by default (and yes, then you could remove Dolphin from your menu).

That clears things up quite a bit actually. That doesn't sound too terribly bad :-) Actually it might make konqueror a better program!
