Differences Kde & Gnome

Recommended Posts

KDE has some features that I like, but I find gnome to be a lot more to my liking. I have been able to configure it easily to look and behave the way I want. Once KDE 3.2 is final I will give it a try and see how it is.

On the gnome side there is also ximian. I am sure that ximian has its advantages. however, I have installed it twice and not been ahppy with it. If you do consider installing ximian, be prepared to reinstall linux if you don't like ximian.

Well, I used kde for such a long time, always thought it was better. But recent build of gnome have greatly improved(in my opinion)and it feels and looks more professional. I also like it's easy customizing through gconf-editor. If you have the room on your hard drive I suggest running both because they both have good qualities. I still use kde just not as much as gnome. But I also use fluxbox with rox, xfce4,and enlightenment.

I like XFCE4 :P

Ah, the wonderful thing about open source. You don't have to choose. Its very easy to switch between them, so you can run one during the week, and one on the weekends if you desire.

Actually, that's a bane of linux. You can spend months playing around with desktop environments and kernels, you get no actual work done. Especially people like us that enjoy tweaking.
