This is only a rant with a highly provocative title, which reflects onto the contents of the post, but not in the way you have expected when you first read it.

So stop yelling your comrades to start to “sharpen the forks”. :D

So, what is this all about?

Well, for a long time now, I keep my system mostly clean of Gnome/GTK programs. Only a few remain (and probably will for both foreseeable and unforeseeable future), and those are GVim, Gimp (big kudos for the last version goes to the developers), Inkscape and Synaptic. Apart from those, whenever I need a program for something, I first search for KDE or Qt based applications, and only if those are non-existent, I consider installing something else.

So, what the hell is this title all about?

It’s about the fact that I have realized that now I’m avoiding KDE/Qt 3 programs as well. For example, I have lived without Digikam and K3B until the KDE 4 ports started to become usable. I still use Akregator from the “three” series, but that is due to the fact that new Akregator crashes a lot for me and I am too busy to investigate why.

So, that’s it.

If you are asking why I’m not writing something useful, that is mostly because I have had no time lately to do anything useful to write about. You can see that Lancelot commits were silent for the past 10 days, but I plan to change that very soon… See you later!
