Bullshit. The user can choose if he wants mac or windows behavior.  
Nothing technical about it.
I find it very unhelpful  how you spew unfounded accusations in an effort 
to remove an application you somehow don't see the usage of. Fact is that 
KDE targets a huge audience.  If you look at the persona's usability 
efforts you will have some facts to talk about instead of waving hand and 
making claims about user-habits you have no idea about.

Now; go and fetch a new Windows user and let him either use the 
kpersonalizer or give him kubuntu and let him figure out how to change 
the double/single click behavior.  After doing so, please tell me which 
one had less problems finishing this task.

That assertion is also in conflict with known fact and intuition.
