  1. there should be many changes, but the majority you can’t really see. If there’s one thing i like it’s not the Dolphin. that file browser just sucks!

    what i like is how they seem to have realized that asking for your password once you need root privileges so many times in a minute is plain stupid. i like that style once used by red hat (or was it fedora already?) where you only have to enter your password once and then a program puts it in session. the session expires, of course, as would any session. but you didn’t have to enter the password over and over.

    maybe there should be a setting for this. if you want kdesu to have your password in session. i think it was there once but they took it out. that was such a wonderful feature. damn!
