Inside of Kde you have much of choiches too, nobody have to use all that
Actually adjusting amount of eyecandy is easy with that wizard.
These dayz is also hard to buy new cpu with under 1,5ghz at least for
atx, in itx-box you can get one around 1ghz.
Also new laptops are over 1,5ghz.
But like you said there are too lot of older machines with less power.
That's why is good to have that wizard to tune candy.
I personally have a fujitsu laptop 1,5ghz celeron with 768mb ram and I
haven't had any problems to use Kde 3.2.2 with lot of eye candy.
And if I need more power I shutdown X and goto console to compile
