Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

is that you are a human who's preferences can't be predicted by a scorecard of features or styles in an OS, just like the rest of us.

But, oh well, here's to yet another KDE vs Gnome flame war where we all use our anecdotes and predilections to prove which one is better...

But before it turns into that I'd like to point out the best quote of the article:

Windows feels a lot more Linuxlike to me than Mac OS. In many ways it seems as if it's a slightly clumsy knockoff of KDE.

:D That's more like it! A KDE vs Windows flame war could actually be entertaining.
