At home I use Gnome since it's simple and easy and I like the Gnome themes a lot better than the KDE themes. Gnome also has the hal/dbus/gnome-volume-manager thing goin' on, which is nice.

At work I use KDE since basically
Konsole > Gnome-terminal
Kwrite > Gedit
Konqueror > Nautilus
for what I need to do. Those are basically the only 3 apps I use at work (except for platform agnostic apps like LateX, Grace etc). The only thing I wish I had in KDE is Evolution since it has the ability to connect to an Exchange server, which would be kind of useful.

I've used all of them for some length of time at least. Gnome is pretty good. Although personally I'm an Xfce4 fan. However, Xfce doesnt provide many GUI-based config utilities. So that might be a problem if your preoccupied with things like transparency and compositing. Regardless, both of those two get my vote for usability and configurability.

Moved from Desktop Environments to Duplicate Threads. Not exactly the first time this topic comes up. Favorite Window Manager?
