There are a number of exciting things that would be

launches an external browser.
There is of course the Rich Text widget that provides a useful subset
of html, and by combining with the xdg-open utility we can have links
that open in the appropriate browser or application for the user's
e.g. a link to a webpage will open in konqueror/firefox depending on
user's browser. Link to a pdf would open in kpdf on KDE, link to an
irc:// link would open in konversation/xchat etc.
Does anyone have any thoughts on how to do this even
potential applications for this?
We discussed this in last year's YaST2 workshop. A very useful application
would be to use Wikipedia links (like, say, "wikipedia:NFS") in the help
texts so we don't have to reinvent the wheel for all kinds of technical
explanations what things like "NFS" etc. is all about. In most cases, this
would not work during the installation yet (no internet connection set up at
that point yet), but it would really be useful later in the installed system.
