Well, I appreciate the politeness in your answer, and I hope I can do the same for mine.
I am a gnome user myself, and don't have major problems with it. I like the appearance, the easy of use, and the cohesion it shows all over.
I am also wondering what will happen with all new mono-based applications, as the author stated, but at the moment I am very satisfied with my desktop option.
Does it mean I should "fire" on KDE? Not at all. It is a desktop where I don't feel comfortable, but it doesn't mean it should not be number 1 for someone else. I like some apps like K3b, and can't stand others such as Konkeror, but once more, those are my preferences.
I just hope both desktops can make common interfaces ("a la freedesktop.org") so that using apps from other desktops is easier and smoother than now, and in any case, there is plenty of room for improvements in both cases.
