I dont like threads like this. They create infighting. If you want to see this anyway see the 2006 LinuxQuestions.org Members Choice Awards

No mention of WindowMaker thus far... So... I'll mention it!

WindowMaker FTW.

But when I need to get stuff done, I use KDE. I find that Gnome "gets in my way" a lot. I don't like that. It has been that way since I first tried Linux in 1999. I just find KDE to better fit my modus operandi.

Of course, everyone is different. Some people really love Gnome. That's one of the benefits of free software - choice.

You couldn't have an argument like this in a Windows-only environment...

From an ex-Windows user perspective:

Dude... I'd have to say that I like KDE a bit more than GNOME. However, for a recent convert, I would have to say that GNOME is simpler. Actually, can I rescind my opinion, and just say that I'm not quite decided yet?

Okay. Tried openSUSE, which comes with both interfaces. Have been using them both (GNOME doesn't seem to be available for PCLOS07). To me, GNOME looks more visually appealing, but lacks options. KDE has so many options, that it's easy to get lost. Still... love those options.

BTW: what is XFC and all those other acronyms I see tossed about? Am I such a nub that I'm just not getting it <yet>?

KDE - Krauts do Environment
E17 - Error 17
XFC - xstacy for computers
WM - widowmaker

Seriously - all desktops or window managers.Just check google for linux desktop and or window manager

probably xfce is the furthest an icewm user like me can go ...

kde and gnome just for "look look see see" only ... and soon you will know that they are actually very boring desktop ...

I'm bit of an odd case. I love KDE but I do almost everything with Konsole.
The thing is that KDE has more flex than GNOME if you don't know how to edit the code yet.
Still I reckon that GNOME has It's place...
In an office where you're not meant to enjoy the experiance of being there.

Why you prefer gnome, gnome can be crashing is more possible and gives you less of Linux.
That's the OP's signature. All I can say is: prove it.
