PC-BSD This release marks a milestone for PC-BSD, by moving to the latest FreeBSD 7-Stable and also incorporating the KDE 4.1.1 desktop. Users will immediately notice the improved visual interface that KDE 4.1.1 offers, as well as a large improvement in hardware support and speed from the update to FreeBSD 7-Stable. PC-BSD 7 also offers a large and growing library of self-contained PBI files available for installation, and improvments for other locales on our PBI Directory website. This release also offers new methods of installation, including a DVD, USB and Internet/network install. Note: Here is an interview with the lead developer of PC-BSD.

Well, KDE had more users last time I saw any numbers, so if you want to chose one it seems sort of sensible. It's also fairly simple to build - gnome is a tangled web of packages in comparison.

I guess the real answer is somewhere between those two and "personal preference of the leading people". ;)
