Thanks for this, Alex - I'll check that out.

I've no intention of starting a war, and I don't use much of the K* 
suite (especially Kmail, Kontact, etc.) - drove me crazy when I tried.  
Mostly, the attraction for me is the ability to have distinct desktops.  
As it is, I have quite a mixture of stuff, K-based, Gnome-based, 
Google-based, and agnostic - and I'm probably not alone in that.  One of 
the attractions with FOSS is that - unlike some OSs one could name - we 
have choice.
