Gnome "Despite the head start that KDE enjoyed, the large number of KDE users and developers, and Linus Torvalds personally endorsing KDE, GNOME has won the desktop environment battle. The final victory came with the third piece of a corporate trifecta, giving GNOME the official nod from Red Hat, Sun Microsystems, and finally Novell. The question is, will the triumph of GNOME lead to the rise or downfall of the Linux desktop?" Run Forrest! Run!

the file selection dialog allow me to type in the path. Having to click through the path is SOOOOOO annoying.

That's probably the biggest reason I prefer KDE.

You can. Just type / or ctrl-L. Or use search-as-you-type and enter to navigate.

Gnome does that. Hit '/' in any file selection dialog and it pops up a dialog to enter a full path with tab completion. Also, if you are already in the directory you want, simply start typing the file name you want and it selects the file.
