until there are hundreds of things about your computer to configure.
one interface that crams 70+ options (as kcontrol does panels) is unwieldly,
and then we add anywhere from a few options to a few dozen options to each of
those 70+ panels and things become unlearnable, unnavigatable and daunting.
in other words, what we have right now.
if under the settings menu there were a few very clear options: system
information, desktop and system settings, look and feel, component
configuration (bad words, need something better) or whatever, and each of
those contained a subset of those 70+ panels (<20 each) things can be much
more managable and much more easily learned.
people can take in vast amounts of information, but only if it is parcelled
