You forgot the annoyanse of the vertical text everywhere, even the kmixer, It is hard already try to read something in the middle of all the klutter to have to read vertical text too. Edited 2006-06-18 15:18
lol... klutter. That's the only reason I haven't tried KDE yet, every screenshot I've seen of it looks really cluttered, it seems that the buttons/widgets/bars take up like 70% of the screen space leaving no room for any acutal work. I'm sure that it's just because everyone seems to use that 'candy' theme but it's put me off.
Use ThinKeramik and derivatives, appropriate font sizes and smaller toolbar icons and you will find that KDE can do just fine in terms of screen real estate.
It's impossible to do the same with GNOME because the applications are designed from the start to be inefficient in terms of screen real-estate and not a single GTK+ theme is compact (they are all varying degrees of oversized widgets).
