I have been looking into getting a computer with PCLinuxOs but I do not know which to use- KDE or MATE. Which one is better? Pros & Cons from experience.

This question is like asking: Which ice is better, chocolate or vanilla?
Nobody can answer this question for you, I would strongly recommend to test them yourself and decide based on your experiences.

My question is not that extreme, not simply good or bad, black or white. I am simply asking for those who have experiece with this distro to tell me what they think. What are the pros & cons that they have found in using this distro.Does this clarify my question?

I would stringly recommend that you find another venue for your anger...

Your logic here is as flawed as you poem. "Forgiveness is the fragrance that a rose has left on the boot that has crushed it"- Mark Twain

astrogeek, come back. Make a positive contribution here, like tell me something about PCLinuxOS. After all, this is the reason that I started this thread- not to be told my question was simplistic. [MODERATED]

KDE or MATE. Which one is better ?
There is only one way to find out :
Install both, and then use the two different 'Desktop Managers'.

The easy way : Install the 'Mate cd'
.. and then install the KDE packages :
The 'login window' will allow you to select 'Mate' or 'KDE'.

User opinion : Don't know. Sometimes I'm using Mate, and sometimes KDE.
It's like when you have two cars ( Or two of <anything equipment> ),
only you can decide which one you like best for the actual use.

Thank you kundfl for showing intelligence. I will follow your advice. I only asked for other peoples opinions as to the
pros & cons of each distro because I am not experienced with PCLinuxOS & just wanted to get some input about the distro.
Again, thank you kindly.
