Gnome "Despite the head start that KDE enjoyed, the large number of KDE users and developers, and Linus Torvalds personally endorsing KDE, GNOME has won the desktop environment battle. The final victory came with the third piece of a corporate trifecta, giving GNOME the official nod from Red Hat, Sun Microsystems, and finally Novell. The question is, will the triumph of GNOME lead to the rise or downfall of the Linux desktop?" Run Forrest! Run!

The reason I use Linux over MS is precisely because I have an intense dislike for windows, a hatred you might call it. Why? Not sure, but it's there stronger now then ever. Maybe it's the way they oprerate monopolistic practices and all. Or maybe they brainwashed people in to think they havea great product.

Agreed ! Except that my dislike for Microsoft came after I really started enjoying Linux. Before, well I was a brainwashed person also.
