I just want to get something done, I don't want to have to care about
the details (not interested). E.g., to follow network time, I'd like a
"follow network time" on/off checkbox instead of knowing to install
ntpd, configuring it, ensuring it starts up when needed, follows IP
address changes, etc.

But up to KDE/GNOME/etc to provide something like that IMO.
