Lets take Konqueror for example, probably the one thing a linux newbie would use most. Right now, with SuSE 10.0 defaults, I have 12 buttons on my toolbar... These are what they do:

It's all about personal preference. As long as it is easy to add / remove buttons from toolbars, then does it really matter how many there are by default?

That's one thing I absolutely hate about Firefox: you have a *severely* limited number of buttons that you can add to the toolbar.

Regardless of the application, if you use a feature more than three times per session, then you should have the option of putting it on the toolbar. The toolbar is for frequently used functions ... so let's make it possible to put frequently used functions on there.

The toolbar editing functions in KDE apps are a little hokey right now and can be confusing even to power-users. I don't know what they are like in GNOME. But the few GTK apps I've used have extremely limited options.

Defaults aren't the big issue. Ease of customisability is. If you make it *very* easy to add/remove buttons from a toolbar, then the initial number doesn't matter.
