KDE "The KDE Community is happy to release the fourth Beta for KDE 4.0. This Beta aimed at further polishing of the KDE codebase and we would love to start receiving feedback from testers. As KDE has largely has been in bugfix mode, this latest Beta aims to encourage testers to have a look at it to help us find and solve the remaining problems and bugs. Besides the stabilization of the codebase, some minor features have been added, including but not limited to much work on Plasma, the KDE 4 desktop shell. Sebastian Kugler notes: 'The improvements have been huge, and plasma is much closer to what it needs to be before the release. I am confident we will be able to finish it and present a very usable plasma to our userbase with KDE 4.0. We will then be able to extend on that and present truly innovative desktop interfaces throughout the KDE 4 lifecycle.'"

Personally I like GNOME and so won't be switching, I've allways found KDE to be a messy bloated GUI that was a bit too windowsesque for me but I suppose each to their own...!


KDE's "messy bloated GUI" (as how YOU describe it) is great for getting work done. Gnome has a fantastic interface for non computer people who want to email friends and occasionly surf the web and dont mind opening new applications to do what you can do with a right click in KDE.
Still you can sit back happy and relax knowing that in 10 years gnome will still be looking exactly the same and, if you're really lucky, the devs will have removed even more of that ugly, bloated functionality stuff - just the way you like it!
