Gnome The GNOME team has released GNOME 2.26, the latest release in the 2.x release branch. As everyone knows, GNOME is a multi-platform open source desktop environment. The 2.26 release continues GNOME's policy of incremental updates to a stable base, and as such, it comes packed with a boatload of new features.

Hold on a sec. You switched to GNOME because you liked its look better? Ever heard of themes?
I'm not saying "Don't use GNOME" or something like that.
If you had said "I prefer the lesser options approach", "I like the usability of Nautilus", "I only use GIMP and Firefox and those are better integrated into GNOME" or whatever then these are valid reasons. But its look?
I'm not a big fan of KDE's default look either (except the icons -- they are awesome IMO). Oxygen improved since KDE 4.0, but I use Polyester as widget theme.

Both projects are good by their own merrits and the default theme shouldn't be the reason to choose one.
