      Hi everybody, hi Steven,

      Personally, I find the idea of ​​Steven quite nice, however, the 
situation in OpenSuse / KDE being what it is today, the software packages 
for openSUSE KDE3 are to be selected and installed "by hand" by the user 
via yast: it is extremely painful <troll>, especialy if you dont want a 
KDE4 library/part to corrupt (-; your installation! </troll>

       How about the idea of ​​a "basic" Trinity bundle and 
another "complete" one, in addition to individual access to each software 
package?

      Cheers
Patrick
