    i find the name "System Settings" for DE config misleading and maliciously idiotic. unless it does real system-wide configuration it has no business be named like that.
    they should call both as "<DE> bells-and-whistles configuration tool", the assholes.
    since you can do system wide settings from system settings:

    you are wrong.

    Any Multiuser setup is a use case for having both KDE and Gnome installed with their settings, alongside any number of other DEs and WMs, from a family box that serves multiple members in a household to terminal servers and multiseat boxes

    For single user use case there's always the developer who wants to see how his program runs in various environments

    Just curious, what are the use cases where you need both installed (switching between Gnome and KDE ?) and is there a use case where you want the System Settings from one DE visible and useable in the other ? Is this just a package name collision (in which case presumably a DE prefix would fix the problem) or is the technical issue a requirement to have cross-DE useability ?

    As a user, I kinda like the idea of using the same name for the same function on different systems, but maybe that's just me

    Chill dude, notice the emoticon?

    But IMHO I do feel that Gnome is a poor excuse for a desktop. But that is just an opinion.

    If only GNOME developers and KDE developers each still put out decent desktops that were even worth using anymore, then this argument over a stupid name might actually not be a complete and total waste of everyone's time!
