Seems you took it wrong while my question was just a question, and a real question.
(Don't know _why_ you took it wrong, except maybe that the whole thread is a bit hypocrite -- but this should not let you conclude that _every_ post is such).

For information, I'm a kind of "design guy" and as such *very* and *really* interested in any kind of doc exposing reasons behind design choices. For instance, I would enjoy to read _why_ kde guys used to think that ├╝ber-customization is a Good Thing -- while indeed other designers think the opposite. And I would enjoy to read why, if only, or how much, they changed their mind on this topic.
