The problem isn't just having a tool-shed or not, it's how well-organized the tool-shed is, and how easy it is to find the tool you want at any given time. It's fine to have lots of advanced and powerful features, but they need to be presented in such a way that the application remains easy to use in the likely-more-common simple use cases. Advanced features shouldn't be in the way.

That, I suppose, is my biggest problem with KDE. All that complexity might not be a bad thing in and of itself but. typically, I find that the abundance of options and features are not managed well, which can make it difficult to get into KDE (and KDE apps) and start using them for simple tasks. I really dread having to wade through four or five long, similarly-named option panels trying to find the one setting that I actually want; that happens to me a lot, when I try to use KDE.
