There is some duplicate :
firefox / konqueror
kontact / korganiser / kmail / kadressboo, that somehow all overlap ( IIRC from my kde days )
- kppp / network center / knetattach -> manage network

I never seen this on windows, ( which is still the most common used
evnironment, even if my own usage date back to xp ), neither on mac os x
( on 10.5 ).
If there is in gnome 2, then I have disabled it long ago. And I doubt
there is on lighter desktop environment ( ie, that's why there are
light, because there is a different tradeoff between feature and memory
footprint ). I need to check with someone running lxde and xfce.
There is something like this on gnome 3.
