Tried kontact last night… *geek*

…thanks to a reminder form that the KDE folks have been putting a lot of effort into it.

Wow. It’s really something else. It literally integrates the important apps (kmail, kpilot, korganizer, knews, kontact) into a single UI so that I can look at a single window and see everything. I suppose this is what the GNOME team is trying to do with evolution. Except Evo has a long way to go.

Now all I need is for firefox to remember my session at start/stop and I’ve got a workable desktop.

And while I understand why people would want more than one desktop, it’s going to be a while before GNOME catches up.

About Kevin Sonney

Kevin Sonney - who, contrary to popular opinion was NOT raised by wolves - grew up in central North Carolina. He fell into the technology field by accident in 1991, when he gave up the wild and crazy lifestyle of an on-air AM radio DJ to become a mundane technical support monkey. The technology industry has never really recovered from this. Kevin has worked for such names as IBM, Red Hat, webslingerZ, and Lulu Technologies (we won't mention the ones that didn't survive the experience). He currently works as a Linux Administrator for Apptio. In his spare time he rescues stray animals and plays video games with his two sons. His wife, we're sad to say, helps him get past the really hard bits. Kevin is still not very mundane, he just got better at hiding it.

    Sounds like you need is Session Saver. Works for me(tm). Although I had to go download from an odd spot to get one that works with version 1.0PR. That site also has a nice list of working 1.0PR extensions.

    I’m playing with it now to see how it works. so far, it’s pretty cool…

    If you’re into tabbed browsing, check out tabbrowser extensions. One of the more huge Mozilla/Firefox extensions but adds on tons of features and options for tabbed browsing. The least of which is session saving…
