Kaptan doesn't replace MCC.

See, you always can go to MCC and change whatever you want. But you
must know what you are looking for.

Kaptan starts after the very first boot, and takes you step-by-step to
configure most common / basic settings so you can feel comfortable and
ready after Kaptan's steps are finished. And everything without
leaving Kaptan's window.

You can go to MCC anytime, but Kaptan should appear just once after
the first boot.

Here's Kaptan page (SVN link is wrong)

Here's the right SVN link: http://websvn.pardus.org.tr/uludag/trunk/kde/kaptan/

Eventually, could be ported to Mageia. Or at least, developers could
take a look and evaluate if it's "portable" to Mageia.
