I prefer Gnome. It feels faster and more stable. But KDE looks better

Neither. Xfce. Nice, elegant, fast and light-weight. Runs great even on my PDA. But if I have to decide between the two above, KDE.

KDE since unlike GNOME their policy is not "Our users are morons confused by buttons, let's remove any configurable feature"

And QT with KDE just has a good look, more modern and welcoming to me than GTK and GNOME, Opera for example intergrates a lot better.

Surprises me. That desktop is not very uncommon. But you know there are other desktops/WMs than Gnome and KDE? :wink:

KDE in my experience is slow bloatware. What's the point of running Linux if your aiming for the same features of another OS but slower. Gnome on the other hand is a bit more original, and makes Linux look much more unique in my opinion.

I agree KDE is big. however, It is also good for a windows user switching to linux. Besides that, KDE can be customized to the way you want it.

I prefer KDE (I use it in my main OS). But in my opinion both Desktop Environments are highly customizable.

That, IMO, is its most important quality. Mine has nothing in common with the default, Windows-like look. And, yes, KDE is my favorite. For low memory setups, I prefer blackbox/fluxbox.

KDE+Compiz-fusion for me

I like the k menu, and when i first got into *nix OS's, kde was my first environment. I tryed gnome, but i don't like it, even with compiz.

Mine dont look like windows either. but by default it does. After I got used to linux, I made my own desktop (actually its more of a mac osx with a taskbar.)

I guess I prefer kde over gnome because kde was my first desktop environment. Im used to it
