    Or do what the makers of Skrooge did with the K. Clever, invokes the famous miser of money in Dicken's Christmas Carol and still got the K of KDE in there.

      No wonder Linux on desktop has 1% user share and I can't really recommend it to any friend when a simple "file manager" has 10 different names in 10 distributions.


      Because Windows Explorer and Finder are somehow better names... Protip: All names suck, none of them make things user friendly or not as long as they are recognizable as words.

        I guess you won't recommend Android and its ten zillion different user interfaces (and names) either, but at least there you can't claim it's the reason it has like 80% share of mobile, and like 60% of internet usage share.

        OMG and Apple? they place an "i" in front of all their stuff!!!! HOW USER UNFRIENDLY!!!!

          Someone (don't remember who, or where) once said that Linux will be ready for the desktop the day someone develops a graphical package manager that is not called "grpm". Hear hear!

            Skrooge seems nice... Compared to KMyMoney i don't know which is better... Opinions?
            I tried Skrooge as well, but what was missing for my usage was AqBanking and HBCI interface. Without this it was pretty useless to me.

              Discover on KDE Neon?

                Well, at least I saw in their start menu they have somehing like:
                Web Browser
                Firefox
                File Manager
                Dolphin
                So people can see first the generic name (what the tool is supposed to do) and then the name its developers gave it (which doesn't matter too much).
                That's pretty well thought in my opinion.

                  Curious though. How does KMyMoney stack up against the other big Qt/KDE based financial program Skrooge, which went KDE5/Qt5 a while back? I heard Skrooge can recognize and track cryptocurrencies. What about KMyMoney?
                  Seems like it is not fully ported, at least on Arch Linux the new KMyMoney tries to pull in a phonon-qt4-* backend.

                  Update: It might be a packaging issue, if I compile the git version from AUR then there is not such a dependency.
