Hehe, I kind of wanted to keep the light weight stuff out of this. I want to see what people chose when they go for a full blown Desktop Environment.

KDE = Bleh!

I'd just as soon use Windows.

Oh dear. Flame war ...


(KDE - Although, I have got Ubuntu going on another PC and I must say the latest Gnome (under Breezy) looks really nice).

Well if I must have a bloated DE instead of a sexy WM I'll take Gnome because I like what they're doing with usability these days. KDE just doesn't convince me not to use the command line for everything.

I voted Gnome because I don't like Konqueror, Kopete, or any other Krap. I prefer gArbage.

Personally, I use fluxbox, I love it. But, given the choice between the two, gnome all the way, but mainly because I have a loathing hate for kde than because I like gnome all that much (although I guess it's ok...).

I'm going to start saving my DE_1 vs DE_2 replies so that I can reuse them.

I use KDE simply because the apps that I like to use are made for it, so I may as well. I use amaroK for music, k3b for burning and konqueror for file browsing.

I know both KDE and GNOME are pretty extensive and possibly more than I need, but I like it. If I wanted minimalism, I would use the command line (and browse the net with wget and cat). Lately though, with the KDE split ebuilds I can shave down KDE's bloatedness much more than I can GNOME's. There is no app that I depend on that requires any GNOME libraries, but there are apps that I depend on that use KDE libs. I want to use my desktop system as a full fledged desktop system and KDE allows me to do that simply.

I voted for KDE. I don't know why, but Gnome is laggy on my sister's machine (Pentium 3 933). At least KDE isn't as laggy and is more customizable. Beside, many great software packages requires KDElib, such as K3B and amoroka.

gnome 2.6 killed gnome for me. i use gnome 1.4 at school on solaris. its way better then 2.6 IMO. the "usability" feature in gnome are the biggest problem because they are hard to "use". fix the file save/load dialogs, remove spatial nautilus (or do it _right_), and make it look like XFCE and maybe i'll look at it again. KDE for me.

twm. However if I had to choose, I much prefer the look of GNOME to KDE, but KDE's configuration is way better (i.e. plain text files versus gconf and hidden XML files). Still I'd have to go GNOME...
