Meh. Personally, I don't like konqueror at all. It does a lot of things, none of them well.

I disagree. To me, konq is the Linux killer app. I'm tring out version 3.5 and it's full of yummy goodness.

What are some specific issues you have with Konqueror? I'm curious, because I often hear vague criticism of it, but rarely actual examples of real-world problems.

Of course, this is all a matter of personal preferences...

I use rhythmbox as my music player, but only out of lack of an alternative (amaroK fares on better).

Why not use amaroK then? It's not only the best audio player for Linux, but also the best all-around audio player period. All IMHO, of course...

K3b suffers from the same problems as konqueror.

Could you be more specific? Personally, K3b handles all my CD/DVD burning needs...

I'd also like to point out that gnome and KDE are generally equal--they both suck, but at different things.

That's a very negative attitude. At least they don't suck as much as Windows, and suck about the same as OS X...

For me k3b has one missing feature. I miss this feature not only on k3b but there are _no_ good gui app for it: make a copy of video-dvds.
If k3b would also be able to rip, shrink and burn video dvd with a nice dialog to select tracks, language, and so on. k3b would be a real killer app. And i could suggest GNU/Linux and KDE for much more windows-user.
