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?"

No, GNOME just removes features that idiot users wouldn't use and leaves the power users in the dust.

...

I can actually get work done in KDE and make efficient use of my desktop.


Because all Gnome users are idiots/can't get any work done. This is the same bullshit argument used by Vi and Emacs fanboys to convince people who use "lesser" editors to switch.

But why would I switch when the editor of my choice does the job perfectly with minimal fuss?

I guess that's the difference between KDE and Gnome.
