Simplicity is the new Complex

My wife, who is no idiot, but who is certainly not a techie, needed to send a picture of herself to her father. Of course, she is running SuSE Linux 10.0 on a laptop, with KDE as her default desktop. She had Digikam open, looking at her picture, and she asked me, “How do I make this an attachment in my e-mail?” At first, I was going to explain to her how she can go into the menu in Kmail and click, “attachment” or something like that. But then I thought, “Why make it hard, when KDE makes it easy.” Everything is integrated so well in KDE. So, I said, “Why don’t you just try dragging it?” (having NO idea whether or not that would actually work). She clicked and dragged the picture from digikam into the e-mail that she was preparing to send to her father. Poof! A little message popped up and asked if she was trying to make an attachment. She clicked it, and voila! Who said things have to be complicated to be good?]]>
