Don't you feel rather hypocritical?

No, I don't. Why should I?

KDE certainly has technical strengths, but so has GNOME.

Certainly, but in my opinion KDE is technically superior, and I mentioned the technologies which I feel give it the technical edge. You're welcome to try to convince me otherwise in a civilized manner.

Note that "technically superior" doesn't mean "better"...

Oh it does. It implies that Gnome are technically inferior to KDE, and therefore not as good as KDE ;)

KDE is technically superior to Gnome in some areas and technically inferior in other areas.

What I like about KDE is the minimum of dependencies compared with Gnome.

What I like about Gnome is mostly CORBA and the usability of the desktop. It's got a much better implementation of the desktop metaphor than KDE (and windows) has.

My favourite is still Knome ;)
