The point is not - hey you're wrong, these other apps are actually the best. The point is, stick to what you prefer and stop wasting time attacking other free desktop environments. Do like KDE developers, they cooperate with GNOME.

I agree that "preferred apps" is subjective. For example, I love using a file manager that is also a file browser. If I need to get closer to the metal I just use the command line.

For the second part of your comment, however, I'd just like to not that I did not attack GNOME even though I feel that Konq, amaroK and K3b are "best of breed" apps. In fact, if you read my posts here, you'll see that nearly all of them include the words "both DEs are good." I still use some Gtk apps on my Kubuntu laptop, namely Synaptic and Gimp.

Yeah, and those posts also contain the sentence: "KDE is superior to Gnome, because of X KDE-app, and Y KDE-app and Z KDE-app, all superior to anything on Gnome."

Personally I'd prefer to have a DE with the resource usage from EDE, the QT-toolkit and C++ in general from KDE, and the look and feel (usability) from Gnome.

Now, that would rock ;)

But until then, people might use Kubuntu or Ubuntu or LFS or Gentoo or whatever they like.

Apart from the themes in use I've got nothing against (K)Ubuntu ;)
