"Finding replacement apps: Itâ€™s like
switching from Windows to Linux all over again
"It feels like I just did this, even though
Iâ€™ve been running Linux as my primary OS since
around 2002. When I decided to stop using KDE recently, I was
surprised to find how many KDE applications on which I had become
dependent, and how little idea I had what to use as alternatives.
Some of them are little and therefore easily replaced, but others
that are more full-featured have been quite a challenge.
Hereâ€™s a sampling of the ones
Iâ€™ve been working on lately.
"Konqueror File Manager
"This one is quite possibly the hardest one
Iâ€™ve had to replace. Anyone out there who has
grown accustomed to the power and flexibility of Konqueror File
Manager can attest that itâ€™s very difficult to
settle on something else once youâ€™ve used it
for any length of time."
