RE[9]: KDE IS DOOMED....

Muine and Banshee are great apps, but they lack some of amaroK's features, such as song lyrics and Wikipedia info. Also, the queue manager is quite useful for me, and "script" extensions (such as Alarm, Desktop album covers and Shouter) make amaroK a very powerful app. That's why the app is used by many Gnome users as well.

As far cd/dvd burning integration goes, there is the burn:/ kio slave, which comes with KDE in a few distros (such as Mandriva). It is pretty much identical to the Nautilus cd/dvd burner. However, I think you're being a bit dishonest by underlining the fact that K3b does not come as part of the basic KDE desktop. While that may be true, K3b is still a KDE app. Whether it comes with the basic KDE "set" is irrelevant or not.

I think it's great that both KDE and Gnome have all these great apps, and it's fine if KDE does better for some apps and Gnome does better for others. The great thing about Linux (or *nix) is that you can easily use Gtk/Gnome apps with KDE and Qt/KDE apps with Gnome. I think that this is one of Linux's strength, and that we shouldn't fight over this. Unfortunately, some people feel otherwise, like those who hijacked this thread to attack KDE (I would denounce them as well if it had been the other way around, by the way).

KDE people just get worse every time.

Can't we just all get along? There's really no need to lump people all in one group. We're all *nix users, let's just say that there are great apps in both DEs.
