In fairness, KDE is a GUI, and their help tool allows you to view man pages (and 
generally formats them quite well). The man/info thing annoys me a lot, because 
info pages gets formatted for 80 column text and left that; man pages on the 
other hand can be rendered to fit your terminal (as long as the size can be 
determined correctly :o)).

Bill, also an "old-school Unix hand"
