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?"

It's the applications

I think someone should try the KDE and Gnome equivalent applications and find which ones he likes best.
e.g. K3B vs Gnome Baker, Gwenview vs. gthumb etc

Then pick the desktop environment he feels 70% comfortable with.

Comparing applications in features and ease of use is much more rational than comparing teams and tastes.

As for me... I usually prefer KDE applications although I run them from Gnome 8-)
