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?"

Balance Between Gnome/KDE

While there was KDE 3.x and Gnome 2.x available users generally were balanced between them with some small amount of people that wanted something more, like XFCE, Fluxbox or dozen of other solutions, but KDE 4.x broken this "market share".

KDE 4 is something like Vista of the UNIX world, its still alpha quality and do not bring any reasonable improvements beyond some useless eye-candy (rotating icons on desktop? please ...)
