Right-clicking on the clock is much easier and much more intuitive. 
Also, using a terminal and utilizing kdesu to start system settings 
requires a user to know the executable name "systemsettings" as well as 
the "kdesu" tool.  I suppose this area is one thing* Windows 7 got 
right; you simply right-click and select "Run as Administrator".

But maybe PolicyKit will fix those issues.  I'm rebuilding KDE right now.
