Holy frijoles batman!

As long as that's only in the 'overlay mode' and not in the 'looks and works the way I want it mode' then who cares.

Vista was a disaster. kde 4 was a disaster. Anybody see a pattern here? Where are they getting their developers from?

Well, if gnome 3 follows the other 2, there's always Xfce.

I hate change but I love progress.

My Linux development machine runs Kubuntu mainly because I like Konsole and Konqueror. I've been watching gnome development ever since it was released in response to KDE. I personally don't see the attraction of gnome, but I understand many do prefer gnome so more power to them.

Lately I've been using Netbeans IDE for java/c++/ruby/various. I have used code::blocks, Eclipse, emacs, and vim with good success.

For my appliance-like devices I tend to run something lightweight, like XFCE, blackbox or fluxbox.

I voted GNOME, but use neither. JWM manages all of my boxes .

Never been a big fan of xfce.... It's really not all that much faster than gnome and it's mainly used on older (slower) boxes... If you have a newer box you are killing yourself by using xfce in my opinion...

Voted for KDE. However, have Ubuntu loaded on same system, along with Mepis, and do use Gnome when I feel like Ubuntu'ing.

Mine's older, but it still does what I want from it. And I'd rather buy tools than computer hardware:D

gnome seems a little bit more polished than kde, however some apps on kde look great. but gnome with linux mint is a gouge full of eye candy.

KDE is more powerful, but GNOME is much more clean and streamlined.

I use GNOME on all my systems.

I've been on Ubuntu through various releases for past 5 years.

GNOME has always been the default interface because it's 'dumbed down' which is what "clean and streamlined" really means, IMHO. That makes it more "accessible" to Windoze refugees- not a bad thing really, but it would be better for folks to be a bit more adventurous. I always add the KDE interface on top of gnome, so the gnome apps are available, but I seldom use any.

As far as I'm concerned, ease-of-use always takes a back seat to detailed control. For example, I've never owned a car with automatic transmission, and so long as I have the physical ability to use it and they are still available, my car will always have a clutch.

As far as the shell or command line usage, it's no surprise that GNOME users shy away from it. I have been progressively using it more and more. Why wait for a gui app to boot, then rustle through various menus to do something, when you can just do a command string? Bingo, you're done.

I have tried a couple of times to use KDE (Kubuntu), but I always come back to GNOME. I believe it's simpler and more "steady" than KDE. OK, the KDE has more features, eyecandy, etc, but If you want to do your job easily, without crashes, etc, GNOME it's better I think.

And about eyecandy in Gnome, I have Compiz and it's awesome..!

I am waiting for a new computer to arrive… I am going to set it up to boot Windows and Linux. I am in the process of figuring out exactly what I want to do – how I want to partition the drives, etc. and what version of Linux I want…

I have maemo 5 OS on my other smartphone and ran into trouble flashing the firmware using Windows 7. Linux will give me more “opportunity” for that device.

This was really helpful thread… thanks for sharing your thoughts!
