Interesting I just realized why I am using TDE. Not because of its
kde-applications (I do almost everything in Xemacs), but because 

    -  all the other windows managers are either bloated or using features.

    -  because of the excellent control center, which made switch from
       debian to Kubuntu. But when I say  control center I mean the one
       which is shipped by Kubuntu (as of hardy 8.04) and which somehow
       survived in TDE but seems not to be a true TDE program, which
       leads me to my conclusion:

TDE is not TDE (TDE on (K)Ubuntu is not TDE on Debian etc)
