My "big machine" (the one I'm writing from) runs 10.04 LTS with KDE 4.4.5 and 
there behaviour is actually located under desktop settings (where imho it 
belongs). It never occured to me to look for it somewhere else. I agree with 
you, that everything related should be sorta in one place. What I experienced 
reminds me on the customer preview of WIN8 ... tried it out and I predict, 
that if MS doesn't change it big ... it will fail since it forces a totally 
new handling on users.

I will be very happy with KDE4.8.1 (what is currently with the Kubuntu Beta) 
since it looks a lot more stabil than what I am used to. 

Talk to you later ... Hans (151 to go)
