Or maybe it is actually of no value to me. What happened to different 
people operating differently and modeling their reality differently?

I need a microwave oven, because it is the easiest and least demanding way 
for a man living along (widower) to feed himself properly. It saves me an 
important amount of time and effort.

I do not need a cellphone, and don't have one, because there is literally 
nothing I would need to transmit to another person that won't wait until 
I get home or find a public telephone. In fact that statement is probably 
true of 80% of the owners of cellphones. Years ago, the same people who 
walk about with the cellphone permanently held to their ear used to walk 
about with what was called a "ghetto blaster" to their ear, playing 
bad "music", but you never see anybody anymore with a "ghetto blaster". 
That might tell you something. Or maybe not.

The point (which I used to think was obvious) is that different people 
have different needs and different ways of solving their problems. The 
KDE4 team, on the other hand, seems to agree with you that all are 
created not only equal, but even identical.
