System Settings is supposed to be a replacement for kcontrol, as one of the 
Kubuntu devs' goals is to reduce some of the redundant configuration areas. 
For example, since Konqueror has a whole slew of settings, why duplicate them 
by having them in kcontrol as well? This , though does not address why there 
are a few things that are *only* in kcontrol and not put into System 
Settings. I personally prefer the layout direction of S over kcontrol, but 
still need to use kcontrol for samba settings or the security/kwallet area
