KDE is better than Gnome
by SoulMaster on Sun 10th Oct 2004 18:09 UTC

In all the instances where I ran GNOME and KDE, I've found KDE to be the faster of the two and much more robust. In fact, I think Linux needs to drop this so called multi desktop and focus on one. This is yet one of the many challenges that Linu x faces to become a "REAL" contender to Microsoft. The commmunity needs to focus on one package and go with it. So if it be XWindows and KDE, that would be the best. Unless Linux does something about this, then you will never have a real challenger to Microsoft. Sure Linux is a great OS, but when it comes to the Home Market, nobody beats Microsoft. Until Linux gets rid of it's elitist uber geek attitude and makes a change to make stuff simple for people to install, run binaries, and to do REAL work on it, it will never beat Microsoft.
