Talk, Rumors, X Versus Y Without tip-toeing around the matter, Linus Torvalds made his preference in the GNOME vs. KDE matter quite clear on the GNOME-usability list: "I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE. This 'users are idiots, and are confused by functionality' mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do. Please, just tell people to use KDE." Also, "Gnome seems to be developed by interface nazis, where consistently the excuse for not doing something is not 'it's too complicated to do', but 'it would confuse users'."

RE: XFCE...why not?

Member since:

I just tried XFCE on my vector box, the latest
stable one..nice installer they have!

One problem I had with it that I never
had on KDE or blackbox was that when
I tried to start Opera, from command line
it complained about no acrobat reader and then
quit(opera was unlaunched) with something about a
fatal i/o error.. The warning was a show stopper in XFCE but not
in KDE or blackbox. Strange.
