Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

Like many people here, I liked KDE very much, but I left it after they introduced version 4. I switched to gnome, and I liked it very much - to the point that I found gnome plays nicer with the user than KDE did, and looks better. Anyway, I've always was interested in KDE project, because I believe they had good intentions but lack of manpower and funding to do proper testing and bugfixing, and when KDE 4.7 came along, I decided to install it on my desktop to check it out. What strucked me is that it has a lot better dual-monitor support than gnome, and - after getting rid of this horrible default settings - it can be just as friendly as gnome is. Not sure about what's faster and lighter for the CPU, because I don't see the difference. Now I'm a KDE user and I'm proud of it ;)
