    Die-Hard KDE User adopts Gnome

    I, a once die-hard KDE advocate, has abandoned KDE and switched to Gnome. I prefer many attributes of KDE, however recently its lack of stability and general bugginess has led me to Gnome.

    Has anyone else left KDE for another less buggy environment?

    this is the purpose of Linux..... to choose.

    But if you want a really good KDE interface, Fedora is known to have a better KDE implementation than Kubuntu.
    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    I use KDE on my Mandriva 2010 machine and have very little problems with it.

    I do however prefer Gnome as long as I install all the cool KDE apps that I love (Krusader, k3b, Konsole etc.).

    Welcome to Gnome...now check out IceWM LOL.

    I use KDE whenever possible. However, I agree with an above poster that kubntu's buggy implementation is partly to blame. Try it out on slackware; it's rock solid.
    I had to do it.

    I used to use KDE. It's not bad. I'm using Gnome now. Just a preference. I like the GUI for Gnome better.

    For KDE, openSUSE and Mandriva have the best reputation. Right now I'm using openSUSE KDE and enjoying it.

    I've also heard KDE 4.5 is a significant improvement over 4.3-4.3 and you can upgrade KDE to 4.5 in openSUSE 11.3 according to an article in OMG! SUSE!.

    I understand. I've been a long time Gnome user, but I figured I would "try out" KDE and openSUSE for the experience.

    From it I found digiKam a better fit for my photo management or more specifically my wife's photo management (once i teach her )
