Comment Re:How Active Does Development Need to Be? (Score 1) 505

Hey, I'm not trying to be aggressive, even though I'm too terse when I talk/speak.
WebKit browsers like Konqueror don't show up by default on SuSE, and really shouldn't anywhere. It doesn't mean it's useless and, due to the amazing modular nature of Plasma (yeah, I know) and Qt, I doubt it takes any significant resources.

I wasn't trying to imply Kontact serves every need (I checked and it doesn't seem to connect to it, but it does to Kolab), just saying that for many companies (which are SME outside rich countries like the US, so no money for Exchange) and for personal usage, it seems useful enough. I wasn't trying to compare to anything because it's not my area, and all I used from Exchange was mail, contacts and a personal agenda, which you can do anywhere.
I totally believe YMMV, and that bigger companies need it for some reason I'm not aware. I just wish people wouldn't throw so much money away to companies like MS and Oracle when they have no need to do so, that's all.

Because Explorer had kio support, tabs, symlink creation, bookmarks, split view, single panel tree view, invert selection, useful multiple file rename, tagging, filtering, previews... oh wait, it still has none of that 21 years later.

I don't know that maintaining a web browser in the face of Chrome, Firefox, Edge, Opera and the rest makes any sense?

Konqueror is just a shell for qt's web rendering engine, which is needed if you want html email or easy to make apps with qtquick.

Also, a standalone mail client? I haven't used one of those in nearly 5 years now. So, do I care that it hasn't updated? Do its users want it to become more like Outlook? I think probably not.

Use Kontact, it syncs email, contacts, agenda...

Well, I'm not a Brit, and at least since Blair I'd rather just avoiding the UK altogether. After the latest concessions, you were really in it in name only, probably not much will really change for either side.

As for a central bank dictating policy... no, the ECB had no mandate to cut financing to Greek banks, at the very least.

If Spain wasn't in the EU, their clever youth would still leave the country for a better career abroad - but Spain wouldn't get anything back.

Except that that would have their own coin and wouldn't be forced to adopt stupid destructive economic policies that never worked at any time in any country - not that that stops corrupt sociopaths like Blair and Rajoy, I suppose.
