I agree with Linus

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 17, 2007 05:27 AM
I am not an expert by any means. I can readily admit that one of the reasons I stopped using redhat back with version 8 or 9 was due to the gnome only interface. It appeared to make things simpler for folks like perhaps my mother to find. It did not however make kdm simpler to customize. With that said I have customized gnome,kde,flux extensively for several organizations I've worked for. Overall I would have to say that if you want simple flux is perhaps the most simplistic. I would however have to agree that kde is a much more well designed desktop interface.

On my personal and corporate workstations I choose to use kde/kdm/slackware. If I need a speedy and versatile gui on a remote station... fluxbox. Gnome in my opinion (which matters very little) has not changed much since 2000/2001!?

In short, I agree with Linus... everyone switch to KDE!<nobr> <wbr></nobr>;-)
