kde. kde has it all. everything a user expects of a desktop and more. gnome sucks due to its default file manager- no tree structure, no sidebar, opens up a new window for every folder clicked.

GNUStep is the open source successor to OpenStep. Which, in turn, was the successor to NeXTStep.

What problems did you have with Rox?

KDE is bit faster than Gnome. The problem with Gnome is , they are keep on staying in too old themes, saying that it was stable. KDE 4.3 was a stable version with excellent features.

Talking

GNOME is ok if you stick to what has been provided with it. And once you start to customize you find the problems. Though the things are there in the config files there is hardly any gui for those. And also the config files for GNOME are spread over multiple hidden directories in home. KDE plays nice by putting them all in .kde .

I would have said Gnome any other time but having checked out KDE 4.3 i have to say i'm impressed, i don't think i'm alone in thinking it has come a long way with this release

Raju,

I know this, also by right clicking the status bar to get "split view", I wasn't referring to that.


I was referring to the file pane view mode (the two icons in the navigation bar) that provided for viewing folders and files intermixed in a tree (like regedit of the other OS we know about).

I just found this viewmode most productive in everyday usage.

And it's gone and I consider staying with the obsolete KDE 3.5.10 just for productivity sake?

Besides, KDE4 Works great on my Gecko Edubook form Norhtech , just no tree view

I often use GNOME, sometimes use KDE.According to my viewpoint and my own favorite, I tend to vote for the former,GNOME,and I like its UI and relative faster speed when running multi-task. As to others, I never or seldom use them. Anyway, I think GNOME is the best or better choice for Desktop Environment of the Year.

Gnome over KDE.

Had difficulty creating a KDE memory stick for boot testing on this netbook. May well be user incompetence, but the Gnome Ubuntu install was an easy install and easy to use.

I rather suspected Gnome might take the crown from KDE this year. I used to prefer KDE over Gnome but such has not been the case for some years now.

I know there is a competition between KDE and Gnome. I thought KDE will be first, unfortunately it is 2nd.
