I think the welcome centre is a great idea, but I don't see how this 
Kaptan tool would differ from the Mandriva configuration centre (MCC), 
long available in Mandriva for easy gui configuration.
Since Mageia is a fork, we will already have that.  (At least initially.)

As well, there is an easy tool for minor configuration of the Gnome 
desktop, which I presume has an equivalent under KDE.

Is the idea essentially equivalent to enhancing the MCC for a more 
complete range of settings to configure ?
