Editorial "I used KDE as my primary desktop from 1996 through 2006, when I installed the GNOME version of Ubuntu and found that I liked it better than the KDE desktop I'd faced every morning for so many years. Last January, I got a new Dell Latitude D630 laptop and decided to install Kubuntu on it, but within a few weeks, I went back to GNOME. Does this mean GNOME is now a better desktop than KDE, or just that I have become so accustomed to GNOME that it's hard for me to give it up?"

No need for a GNOME vs. KDE flame-war, he's using the DE that he finds more comfortable. If I had to guess, I'd wager that 99% of us using FOSS on the desktop do the same. Now, as to the Ubuntu vs. Fedora debate, I do find that occasionally one will work better than the other with my hardware, so I use it until it breaks and/or the other catches up. My desktops pretty much look the same in both as they share a common home directory. And the winner is.. ME
