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?"

*Critical to keep both*

The key factor is there is actually 3 choices for the Desktop Manager now.

That is what keeps everything on the cutting edge, competition from Gnome, KDE and XFCE.

Gnome has some nice apps, KDE has some I use at work on a daily basis and it is nice just to switch to KDE at work sometimes for a change of pace.

In the end, the user community wins because it allows the end_user to enjoy the benefits of both.

I am a Fedora/Red Hat advocate so Gnome or KDE is good for me.
