Gnome "Gnome 3 has received a lot of disapproval of late, from the Gnome foundation being charged with not taking care of its users, or losing mindshare, to Gnome 3 itself being an unusable mess. I've been using Gnome 3 myself for a few months to sort the truth from the fiction, and to try and understand just how the Gnome foundation expects their newest shell to be used. I will end with some thoughts on how Gnome 3 can be improved. The review will require a fairly lengthy preface, however."

That sounds pretty neat. Before I wrote this review I was actually in the process of moving to KDE from Unity. Then I thought I should use Gnome 3 in earnest to try and explain to myself exactly why I didn't like it.

KDE's always sounded better technically, but it always felt like a steep learning curve. Coupled with the fact that their desktop themes always look only just slightly askew, I never really took the plunge (except for the really early days on a slackware distro). Kubuntu has also been a bit of a bastard child of Ubuntu, not receiving enough love. I might want to try using KDE for a few months and see how it is.
