Gnome 3 is debatable, yeah it's the default desktop and yeah it's polarizing to some people but compared to Gnome 2 it's been an extremely smooth transition and Fedora's implementation is quite well done.

KDE4 on the other hand was never the default of Fedora proper. It was put out there so the bleeding edge lovers could play with it and so the Fedora guys could clean their version of it up, but I don't recall it being really treated as an equal citizen for a few releases.

You can argue that "GNOME is the default Desktop environment, not KDE," but it doesn't change the fact that for KDE users, Fedora made KDE4 the *default version* of KDE long before it was ready. There no longer was a KDE3 in the repositories, for KDE users, KDE4 was the default. They had to real choice other than to switch to a different desktop environment, or an entirely different distribution altogether if no alternative environments were good enough.
