No I don't think this is true. I mean are there difference
apart from the look or command line parameters whatever? In
functionality (of course look would be a criteria in kde and
gnome but they have a strong focus on the look while
bandwidht limitation tools should have a strong focus on
bandwith limitation) for example?

Thats what differs in kde and gnome. Does it
differ here too?

Hi Nico,

As I said, throttle is too simple with 3 or 4 command line options
written in mind with simple use. While, cstream has lots of options
available to configure your need.

I will love if anyone can sponsor it :)
