When I first started using Sabayon one of the things I found interesting was Beryl and Emerald. The Beryl settings manager was reasonably well organized and it was easy to find and modify desired settings. Then came the re-merge of Beryl into compiz, resulting in compiz-fusion. As a result of gnome-centric design we are now forced to search through a poorly thought out settings manager, forced to contend with a constant series of icon and back button clicks to navigate. I've reached a point of frustration with the settings manager and have given up on compiz-fusion.
Even worse is the planned implementation of a similar settings manager in KDE4. System Settings, the planned replacement for kcontrol, is based on the System Settings app in Kubuntu. Once again a project bows to Ubuntu, abandoning a well planned, functional design in favor of one that is little more than a gnome clone.http://www.kde-forum.org/thread.php?threadid=17965
Don't let Ubuntu have the final say. Vote for the bug in the KDE Bugzillahttp://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=153556
