The first desktop i used was KDE. I liked the way everything worked ( well it's a start =] ). But since using ubuntu, i've always preferred gnome. The interface is simple and, you don't (at the moment anyhow) have to goto application and control panels (which i find is to F***ing windows like!).

So anyhow, recently I was reading about KDE 4, and was actually so impressed, i started to get intreased in doing some development for it. So I then thought i would have another look at KDE. So in the normal debain manner ( apt-get install kubuntu-desktop =] ) i installed kde, only to found that it actually fan faster =S. I was actually disappointed, because i want the fastest desktop, but i like gnome.

So... ( apt-get install xubuntu-desktop )....

... OMFG! What the F*** have they done to xfce?! :O

The first time i used xfce was back when slackware 10.1 came out. xubuntu is completely different, i really couldn't be bothered to figure it out so in the end: i was soo annoyed i couldn't find the perfect desktop! However, in the end i found the perfect answer!

CTRL + ALT + BACKSPACE! Terminal rules! XD

I've always felt most comfortable with Gnome. For me it just works...

4 reasons I use and voted for GNOME:
1. It is the default For Fedora (Gnome with Bluecurve)
2. Gnome looks less like windows
3. I like Konqueror but prefer Nautilus
4. I was introduced to Linux with Gnome

I have both KDE and Gnome installed on my Computer, so I can use KDE programs while in GNOME

God I love Firefox's Spell Checker

Yes you can. Look at the software repositories. You can also install Kubuntu (KDE-Ubuntu). You are attempting to highjack this thread, better to open an own thread...

JZL240I-U You can install kde in Ubuntu simply by either doing a apt-get install Kubunut-desktop or by searching for the Kubuntu Desktop Package in synaptic., and installing KDE through Synaptic.

It just seems strange to me that kde is DE of the year yet the distribution winner, almost twice as many votes as any other, has gnome by default.

The whole family of *ubuntu went under name Ubuntu in distro voting, including increasingly popular Kubuntu which has KDE as default. Besides, it is very easy to add KDE to classic Ubuntu as well.

Yup, I added KDE to classic Ubuntu in under ten minutes. I love it. It's brilliant. Although it'll take a bit of getting used to, due to the fact I've been using GNOME from the first time I used Linux.
