Default KDE or GNOME Poll?

Please Login to Remove!

Just curious as to what BBF'ers on Linux are using...

Not a debate as to which is better... Personally I do not like KDE and have always used GNOME..

Please vote!

I have Gnome and KDE on my Debian, but 98% of the time I use Gnome!
I love the look and feel of Gnome, but also I'm a big fan of some KDE apps (that I use on Gnome) like Kopete, Kate, Amarok and K3B.

The best of both worlds.... You know you can use them apps in gnome?

I started with KDE back in the days of RedHat 6 and 7, and later migrated to Gnome which is what I primarily use today, although I do have to say that I like LXDE and really enjoy OpenBox, especially when it is the desktop behind one of my favorite lightweight Linux distros, #!CrunchBang.

KDE every day. I started with gnome but quickly discovered kde's awesomeness and haven't looked back. I'm running kubuntu and windows 7 on my laptop, but considering flipping to fedora just to change things up a bit and really give red hat a shot

Just food for thought here but if you are happy with kubuntu you might consider sticking with it. Fedora is great but it's bleeding edge and a basic testing ground for RHEL..

I jump back and forth between Ubuntu, Fedora, and openSuse depending on who has the latest release... I always find my way back to ubuntu...

I'm no great fan of Gnome, but its soooo much better than KDE. Every release or so, I go an check to see if KDE still sucks...and yep, it sure does. In fact, I think its getting worse. I wish they would drop KDE support and stop Kubuntu development.

If SuSE went Gnome, I think I might think about switching. ;)

Gnome on openSuse rocks! Just download the gnome version... The menu is a bit different than standard Gnome but I think you will like...

Yes, but then you get horrible inconsistencies in how some of the apps work in terms of key sequences etc. It can help at times however, but personally I stick with Gnome most of the time. Well, actually a hybrid of XMonad and Gnome-Session.

I keep jumping back on to the gnome-wagon. I do not know what it is about kde and I can't quite put my finger on why I dislike it. I'm also fiddling around with the Enlightenment desktop environment also; E17 is quite nice.

I've been using kde since the late 90's and I still use it on my note books but since the kde 4.x fiasco I've switched my main desktop machine to ubuntu 9.04 with gnome although I still use some kde apps such as konqueror, digiKam, ksnapshot, konsole, kate, kcalc & krdc.

On my notebooks I run OpenSUSE 10.3 with KDE 3.5 and on the newer one OpenSUSE 11.1 with KDE 4.1 (what a pain that is).

gnome isn't perfect but I think it's a more natural way of working that kde 4.x

I still like kde 3.5 better than gnome but I've managed to get my desktop under Ubuntu to work sort of like kde 3.5 (more or less, kind of...) so I'm content.

KDE 4 was / is a disaster... I hope Gnome does not make the same mistake in gnome 3...

Check out screenshots of gnome 3 in the link below... If this is what they are shooting for, I will be greatly disappointed!!!!
