Question Whatís the difference between KDE, Gnome and BlueCurve?


Iíve always run linux from the command line but I would like to get a PC running with RH 8.

I know nothing about KDE, Gnome or BlueCurve.
What is the difference?
Is one better than the other in any regards?

The difference is the Libraries they use to build the GUI. Gnome uses GTK+ and KDE uses QT. Whether one is better than the other is simply personal taste.
