totally wrong. imagine setting up WiFi network. one mouse click opens 
WiFi manager window. another double-click selects network to connect. 
another click closes the window of WiFi manager. How in the world it can 
be easier to do this with config files ????

they try to compete and fail. doesn't matter who did what first. today 
windoze gui is way more usable than kde4. that's the only thing that 
if kde4 were a commercial company they would have been fired or go out 
of business long time ago.
