No, in fact KDE is often cited as the preferred DE of people coming in from Windows, while GNOME is often preferred by Mac users.

People say this because GNOME has taken a lot of inspiration from Mac OS lately, while KDE is still closer to Windows in some (mostly superficial) areas. Nobody has any clue what those user groups actually prefer.

Stop trying to start flamewars, you nasty little troll. Both DEs are good, though KDE is superior from a purely technical standpoint (DCOP, kio_slaves, and such).

Don't you feel rather hypocritical? KDE certainly has technical strengths, but so has GNOME. Although most of them are developed in a desktop-agnostic fassion these days. In the end, what really matters is what technology is used, not which project it "belongs" to.
