To move to KDE 4 I need a good...

Comments

I don't get it. All of those things exist in KDE 3.

Do the choices mean e.g. "I will move to KDE 4 when the KOrganizer port is fully functional" or do they mean "I will move to KDE 4 once a new hypothetical, shiny "KSuperCalendar" gets written"?

I meant which of the features/apps listed are requirements for people to switch to KDE 4 from KDE 3. ie. what is needed for it to be someone's primary environment.

You can run KMail from KDE3 just fine in KDE4! In fact; that is most probably going to be the suggested way to do emailing in KDE4.0

I don't understand the poll as it confuses the issue. We already have all of those things. And at least half have little to do with KDE4, the framework.

That would mean running a kmail that didn't use the right theme, icons, ioslaves etc. It would also lack DBUS support. I can't see that being optimal.

I think the poll is totally valid (in fact even more so as a result of what you're saying). ie. which things must be native KDE 4 before people can use it as their primary desktop.

The File Manager & Panel are the only two that count all the rest are nothing more then applications that can be run in any desktop. You can run Gaim in KDE and KMail in Gnome. KMail isn't a reason to run KDE.

Well its a good thing the final manager is second only to the panel, since Dolphin is one of the few "I could imagine using this everyday" programs for KDE4 currently in my opinion. Though kwrite ain't too shabby.

I voted for word processor, since oowriter has been annoying me recently. ;)
