go to the logout option and end session only a new sign-on screen will appear with all the user names on your linux system. after you select the user it will go to a password screen where there is an a dropdown selection box to pick the environment you want to use.

No. They are considered to be as good as the other.

I just prefer KDE because Konqueror is much better then Nautilus, but then this is just a question of personal preference. Itīs much like choosing a distro, itīs all linux .... the rest is preference. Try both and see what you like!
