Kpdf looks to be...

... More or less like a KDE version of evince. By which I mean, another modern useful document viewer, but with far more options to do... something or other.

That strikes me as how things should be. Personally, I can barely look at those kpdf screenshots, there are buttons/colours everywhere, and I would be constantly distracted.

Therefore, I use evince (and similarly, the rest of GNOME.) I'm willing to entrust a lot of settings to be decided by the people who make the software, so that I just get a system that is well set up immediately, and doesn't cause me more work.

Isn't that who the how desktop thing is? Neither is better of itself; I can't bear to use KDE, others feel the same about GNOME, but I don't see that's any reason to bitch about either.

Ok! We finally have the answer to Gnome vs KDE issue

Gnome - for ADD victims (attention deficit disorder)
KDE - for all other (normal?) people ;)


Dont take it seriously, I also think KDE can be toned down a bit.

well i like to think it is more like gnome for people who are very focused and do not care about what something looks like as long as it is functional, simple and nice whereas kde is more of the "look at me" crowd and I want to change colors everyday - today is a "say something" color day....

gnome - gay
kde - flaming gay
(honestly no offense meant to anyone)
or
gnome - black leather classy pimp
kde - tricked out, bling bling, pimp hat, pimp

:)
