I am TOTALLY confused about KDE and Gnome
Ok, I am officially confused. I have read so much about KDE vs. Gnome, and posts about Linus bashing Gnome, and all of that stuff that i am in complete overload. I am usuing Ubuntu 7.10 (Gnome). I just don't understand what the difference between Gnome and KDE is.
Ok, so they look different to me. Big deal. I can make Gnome look exactly like I want it, and with compiz-fusion in the 7.10 I can do way more than I would ever need to.
I see that there is software differences between the two DE's, but so far anything that I have installed, be it KDE stuff or Gnome stuff, has worked just fine in Gnome. Almost everything I read is pretty much just an opinion on what DE is prefered and I am not seeing any actual facts of the differences between the two DE's.
Frankly I am sick of reading about it and not getting any real answers. Is it really just a matter of preference between the two DE's? or is there more to it than that? Is the difference between Ubuntu and Kubuntu just the DE's??
Please, if you respond to this I ask that you don't point me to yet another post about opinion on the two DE's (I have read enough of that). I just want the facts. Why one DE over the other, because if the difference is just cosmetic than I really don't care about it. Disk space means nothing to me either.
EDIT: I just read through that and I sounded like a complete ***. I really am not meaning to sound that way, just a little frustrated LOL
