"Brian Proffitt has written a story about how he laments missing features in a recent version of openSuSE. This is an article in sympathy, as my own experiences have been similar, although I've been reluctant to blog about them in case they're not really missing and I just don't know where to look.

"My first, and greatest, lament is the absence of kprinter. Kprinter is (was) one of my favourite 'office' applications. I knew I could simply send everything off to kprinter and it would print things the way I liked them and, on occasion, allow me to make one off changes to how things print. Now, with kprinter gone every time I print something I need to navigate the interface of the particular program and set my requirements. Unlike kprinter, most programs don't store them, so every time I print I have an extra 5 or 10 mouse clicks/navigations to do just to get something to print."
