I figured I'd uninstall openoffice, then try out KDE. I really like the
new look for this version.
Previously, I thought that KDE looked too XP'ish and before the XP
style copying, it looked too cartoonish.
The new look seems easier to navigate and has a lot more clarity.
I've been a GNOME user for the most part. This new version of KDE might
be worth switchig from the dwindling Gnome powers. (metacity, instead of
something better. Menu editing problems, etc)
I like the new KDE so far.

A visit to a strange place will bring fresh work.
