    Well, I guess they would be less childish if the GNOME guys hadn't spent the last 10 years reimplementing all their ideas poorly and trying to kill them with FUD in the process.

    But this particular battle is quite childish, yes.

    What else should they call it? It controls system settings, FFS.

    facepalm

    As KDE occupied this name first, it is ours as a result, and I will
    NOT be relinquishing it to satisfy your personal (selfish) desires,

    (...)

    As KDE System Settings maintainer, I request that you immediately
    rename it once again to another name.

    Too bad, you got it wrong. KDE System Settings can configure the system. In fact it can configure anything for which a KCM is available. Heck, even KPackageKit hooks into KDE System Settings for software management if it's installed.
    YaST still does not do desktop settings. It doesn't care if you are running KDE, Gnome, or even command line. Almost every single configuration that you do in KDE System settings is kde user specific. Log out of KDE and those settings are no longer in play. YaST on the other hand handles those settings system wide.

    i agree with ben, and i too don't understand why gnome's "control center" name was dismissed.

    Clearly we need to take the dbus (namespace) approach.

    You just navigate to the org.kde.DE folder then click org.kde.DE.SystemSettings, or alternately org.freedesktop.Gnome.DE and org.freedesktop.Gnome.DE.SystemSettings

    j/k

    I don't know. That was a reply to deanjo's post.

    Well, "System Settings" suggests system wide administration. IMO, both KDE and Gnome chose a poor name. It should be "Desktop Environment Settings".
