Maybe we should do a blog post for every application developers believe deprecated and description of it’s replacement.
The first one IMO should be Network Center (drakx-net) vs. NetworkManager Applet and NetworkManager. What it does, how to use it, where documentation for it is, and importantly how to use it from command line for users with more complicated needs. For me it works fine but I find the interface to border on being to simple/limited.
Another example would be Drakdisk vs. KDE Partition Manager. I suspect there are more.
This is a great way to publish, and document these changes and help users adjust. And it would make answering a lot of question so much simpler to simply provide a link to blog post.
