    konqueror sysinfo:/ is going to be deprecated, this is not an openSUSE decision, it's KDE that moved from here to kinfocenter, which indeed gives more, and more accurate, information. Just an example: if I run konqueror sysinfo:/ on my NVIDIA Optimus, it will still say I'm using the integrated Intel. kInfocenter does see both videocards.

    Cool Re: What Happened to My Computer Icon in 12.3?

    I feel like we have taken a step back here to geek world, and lost sight of ease of use for non tech people....

    The layouts and displays of these new tools, are tech like not simple user like!

    The kio_sysinfo seems to be back, but konqueror is no longer even listed as a file manager only as a browser under internet.

    But dolphin seem to lack many of the basics...

    Feeling umm

    Uhh, really?
    Its simple to gather system information still in openSUSE, just because it doesnt have a "my computer" Icon anymore doesnt mean the end of the universe.

    Is this grouped in one convenient place where a relatively novice user could navigate to easily without having to know any commands?

    I was under the impression Linux was trying to be more user-friendly, both the OS AND community.
