    Re: kde or gnome?

    nice having the choice tbh, you can wind down kde to be nice and simple and have features that are applicable to you. thats the way for me; the K way!

    Re: kde or gnome?

    GNOME; I don't particularly like KDE because it simply looks unprofessional, IMHO. Also: I like XFCE more than KDE, but less than GNOME.

    I Will Use Gnome!

    I'll use GNOME. I'm used to it, and that's what I am comfortable with. I tried out KDE but then got lost in its lengthy menus. GNOME looks much less terrifying.

    Re: kde or gnome?

    this answer of Erik van Luxzenburg could almost be exactamundo my answer -->
    My problem is, I like certain programs of the one, and certain of the other. I like the scheme-ability of KDE, which I can make look like an OS X system to many other ways, GNOME lacks this. I like AmaroK, which is much greater than Rhythmbox (though the later is filling the gap), I like the KDE Control Centre to edit my KDE desktop, as well as I like many graphical tools under KDE. However, I prefer Nautilus over Konqueror, Firefox over Konqueror, Thunderbird over KMail, and all those run smoother under GNOME I feel than under KDE. I prefer GAIM not Kopete, but also that isn’t running smooth under KDE. And the same counts for OpenOffice, feels like it runs easier under GNOME than under KDE. On the other hand, Skype matches better under KDE than under GNOME!

    So even though I would like to use KDE, I run GNOME, as OpenOffice, Firefox, Thunderbird, GAIM and Nautilus are my most used programs. So agreeing some programs are not the best is a good thing, I keep on tracking KDE, and when I feel it matches what I like, I switch again. In the meanwhile, I read the whole discussion and sigh:

    Why couldn’t KDE and GNOME be more blended, so I can run a desktop I like? Using the best of both worlds!

    Re: kde or gnome?

    kde, by far, 70 percent of linux users use kde, so there are a lot more programs made for it, plus it is a lot more customizable

    Re: kde or gnome?

    If Gnome keeps devloping the way its going the chioce between KDE and gnome might have to be decided by a flip of the coin lol.
