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?"

There are probably some tools to help administer accounts in mass in Gnome that I have not used and do not have an equivalent in KDE, gconftool does not count though.

This functionality has been built right into gconf from the very beginning, and you can use gconf-editor or gconftool to set any keys as default or mandatory (provided that you have write-access to /etc/gconf/).
