Pros and cons of KDE and GNOME?


I'm sure this question has been asked a million times, so if someone wants to just send a link to a similar post, that'd be fine.

I'm installing Debian on my computer, and I'm trying to decide which to use as my main desktop. (I'll probably have both installed.) I know that one is not better than the other, but I was wondering if anyone could note the main differences so that I would know which one is best for me?

Thanks!

Why not try them both???!!! You already said you would install both, so do that. You can run two logins at once--one Gnome and one KDE. toggle with ctrl-alt-F7/F8.

There is much more that is the same than there are substantive differences.
