"I refuse to run a file manager that's also a file browser, that's just plain bad usability copied from Microsoft Windows 98."

That isn't quite correct. KFM (the precursor to Konq) had that feature in mid 1997 IIRC. In late 1997 when beta 2 came out, it was already fairly functional (although slow) as a web browser and very good as a file manager. Network awareness throughout the environment was present. KDE beta 4 was released (Apr 98) and was quite usable as both a browser and a file manager. My only complaints about it were that it was a tad slow compaired to Netscape, sometimes it would seem to just hang while rendering pages on the Internet (maybe that was just my crappy 24.4K connection), and the whole environment was a resource hog compaired to FVWM (still my favorite).

Other than that minor quibble, I absolutely agree with you. Use what suits _you_ on _your_ system.
