Linux It is not too surprising that Ubuntu came in first in DesktopLinux.com's 2007 Desktop Linux Market Survey, or that Firefox was the topmost browser by far. More interesting is that for the first time ever in the site's annual surveys, GNOME surpassed KDE among desktop environments (45% over 35%), with Xfce a solid third (8%).

The thing I noticed about Gnome is there a minimum of apps that come with it--your distribution adds more. KDE, on the hand, is a giant bloated mass. So many apps included in KDE that just sit there, taking up disk space. Sure, you can remove them from the menu but they are still there and there is no way not to install them.

Gnome is just simpler and cleaner. That's why I switched to it.
