No, in Kubuntu there are 2 etc.  In TDE on Debian there is only one,

No, it is not "more intelligent", it is more bloated.

Alexandre, we know that you like KDE4 and would like TDE to be more 
like it.  You should know by now that many of us don't agree.

We all, you included, could use KDE4 if we liked.  We have chosen TDE.  
Do, please, stop trying to drag TDE into the "modern" realms of bloat 
and bling.  Bloat and bling are readily available elsewhere.  Do let 
us have our comfortable, functioning, backwater.
