KDE "KDE 4 is coming. It's starting to look and behave in a mature enough manner to use it on a normal desktop. This article is a little introduction as to what you should expect from the brand new KDE that is due out later this year." Lots of screenshots too.

My experience and the experience of the people I help with computers is that they feel at home in ubuntu(with gnome). In kubuntu they feel confused within 1 minute. Too much toolbars, configuration options, buttons... KDE just doesn't work logical for these people(and me).
I am very happy that Ubuntu uses gnome and that OpenSuSE and Mandriva have a nice gnome desktop too. KDE is the reason not to use PCLINUXOS or MEPIS.

"In kubuntu they feel confused within 1 minute"

Lucky for you and your friends that gnome was designed for people with an attention span of less than 1 minute.

I'm sure that giving them the option to copy or move a file when dragging it in the file manager confused them no end.

But that's possible in GNOME too so what's your point? A lame attempt at trying to flame GNOME users?
