+1. The other day I submitted a bug report enhancement request (642) to move the focus steal prevention level option to the Focus tab. I think little things like this would help much. We probably all could search the web for complaints about Control Center and find a few ideas. Does the old KDE3 bugzilla still exist?

Overall I find KDE4's Control Center (System Settings) more confusing that KDE3/TDE, but that does not mean they haven't moved a few things to a more appropriate location. We should study the new layout and borrow some adjustments.
