gnome is so good! I had tried gnome and kde, but gnome won!

I am sorry, but I just like the Eye candy that KDE has, it's neat and organised, plus I guess if more people used it, the more questions that can be answered in LinuxQuestions.

I havent tried anything else than KDE so that is my opinion.

gnome seems a lot more usable than kde, imho.

ive tried kde many times, but it seems too bright for me.

yeah, its more usable because it is too bright... of course, colors can't be choosen, isn't it? or did you mean the other 'bright', it's too clever for you? than gnome is you'r desktop, its not made for 'bright' ppl apparently (eg you can't change the colors easilly as you *might* make the foreground color the same as the background color, and make fonts unreadable... wow, they thought of that!)

ow, very well possible i didn't really understand you'r statement, english isn't my native language :D

I tried GNOME after installing Ubuntu on a friend's computer (windows was currupted, and we didn't have any WinXP cds :P), and I liked it, it was nice... I'll definitivelly try GNOME one of these days.

:D

these must be some of the funniest and most curious of comments i've seen in a long time.

one wonders if any language is native to you? :scratch:

KDE, but I use Fluxbox, Openbox & Blackbox most of the time.

If I understood well, KDE and GNOME are Desktop Environments. Fluxbox, enlightenment, and Windows Maker among others, are Windows Manager.

Besides the size of the source code ;) what qualifies a "Desktop Environment" and what qualifies a "Windows Manager"?

burntfuse 02-05-2006 10:07 AM

Personally, I think KDE and GNOME both concentrate way too much on themes and fancy graphics, and not enough on usability, small size, and speed, but GNOME is still my favorite one on the list, so I picked that.

teckk 02-05-2006 11:31 AM

My 2 cents.

If I'm going to use a big heavy DE then I'll use KDE.

There is something to be said for all of the editors, multimedia tools, and other apps that come with it.

I prefure Flux with Xcalc,Gedit,Gmixer,Sylpheed etc.
