No, we're not talking about everyone setting all their settings twice. Just
tweak the things you want for the apps you want. That's not going to be very
much stuff. With KDE, once you've got that figured out, it's pretty easy to
mass deploy such configuration changes, too, so you really will only *have*
to do this once (unless you change your mind frequently :) ).
I still have to deal with two different "configuration" tools, that do
about the same thing but a bit different. If i want to tune app K i need
the KDE configuration tool, if i need to tune app G i need the gnome
configuration tool. When kde apps and gnome apps look exactly like each
other (which is an other problem, different look and feel) how do i know
that i need kconfig when i want to tune app K? KDE and Gnome are two
different things, even though they do almost the same thing. It is like
using Honda parts to fix a Fort, a handy mechaninc might make it work,
but it would be way easier to use Fort parts to fix a Fort.
