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?"

Gnome, Firefox and many other programs have a simple solution: plugins.


Sure not all of Gnome have plugins, but more and more programs do.


And it's such a simple solution that several KDE applications have had the ability for years, so stop writing nonsens.

Applications like Kopete, K3B, Digikam, Kate, Kdevlop, Amarok, KTorrent all uses plugins. And that's only applications I know of, there are more.

Konqueror has always been able to use plugins, thats since 2000, so it's not exactly a revolutionary concept foregin to the KDE developers.


And besides that many applications DO have an integrated spell checker.


If you compare many application to all text input fields, there are a slight difference :-)
