Red Hat 7.0 or 7.1 GNOME or KDE???

Does anyone have any suggestions on which is better? I have both 7.1 and 7.0 but I dont know which to use:

Red Hat 7.1 or Red hat 7.0

How about GNOME or KDE... or both? Any suggestions?

Talking KDE or Gnome? Its up to your preference.

I prefer KDE but it's pretty much up to you. I would say KDE is the most like windows, especially if you get the latest release which by the way is awsome. I still find myself using gnome too sometimes and on my computer the gnome apps startup faster.

KDE is for dull people, who do hospital corners and eat cucumber sandwiches.

GNOME, is for *slightly* less dull people, who occasionally eat jam sandwiches too.

Gnome all the way.

rh71 is the next version of redhat, has improved general everything and such like. Upgrades don't work the sanme as in the windows world. Getting the newer version of a linux distro won't make it harder to personalise, and use in your own way, it should simply be more reliable and such like.

I would suggest 7.1, better than 7.0.. it has updated features, later kernel version.. but that is always downloadable... etc..

As for KDE or GNOME, install both, see which one you like the best. And it doesn't always hurt to have both installed.

Re: Red Hat 7.0 or 7.1 GNOME or KDE???

7.1 for sure... lots of bug and security fixes, as well as lots of updates.

Install both KDE and Gnome and give them each a try, I don't like either and use Blackbox instead.
