(General (random) IDEAS:)

    • Merge Personal and L&F (a la MacOS) and do not split Applications/Workspace appearance
    • Move "Printer" to its own category, move "Remote Controls" to "Input Devices"; and merge "Removable Devices" and "CD&DVD" as "Removable Devices" (with a custom icon with a CD image on it)


-- Krop:

- Merge CDDB+ AudioCD - Remove "Hardware" (solid backends) - resources/akonadi/file associations/autostart kcm are advanced users things - Akonadi and Desktop search are not System Behaviour - THe advanced tab should be kept - merge the desktop theme details with appearance (since choosing the plasma theme was moved there, that would make sense) - move service manager to computer administration - Remove fonts installer

bcooksley:

- The term configuration is pointless in System Settings... so Akonadi Configuration -> Akonadi. Giving a descriptive tooltip really helps. - Remote Widgets Policy -> Remote Widgets perhaps? - Input Shortcuts -> Shortcuts & Gestures sounds good. - System and Applications * maybe change to Desktop and Application behaviour - Akonadi and Desktop Search are a desktop/application behaviour - Browser Settings -> should remain in Konq for now I think, unless used elsewhere in the desktop.
