I think the reason it's so low-key is that a) the number of Linux/BSD/whatever users overall is quite low in the scheme of things, b) upgrading to KDE2 is non-trivial and c) the number of distributions including it as standard is low (mandrake7.2 is the only one that springs to mind, are Red Hat doing it yet?)
It's one for the future though without doubt, once a few annoying bugs have been sorted.
Kmail is nice too. It is nice to have a mail client that will load up faster than it takes for you to write your letter.
>b) upgrading to KDE2 is non-trivial
I did it the easy way. I just saved my work on another computer and lopaded Mandrake via CD.
>Kmail is nice too
Yep, the KDE2 version is a vast improvement. The multiple identities feature makes things so much easier, and the lack of it in v1.* was a major pain.
I feel your pain bro.....I have tried installing 4 different distros and the best is by far Mandrake 7.2. It actually works.
If all else fails you could always rent some 18 year old kid who speaks fluent Star-Trek to install it. ;)
