I may be wrong, but I don't think it is inherent in Gnome to detect your wireless and not in KDE. It is probably a different app that is something other than the flavor of desktop.
Also, I think Linus has taken a stand because he is a user just like the rest of us. He doesn't live in a terminal window. My guess is he would probably prefer a gnome interface with a few more options, and that is why he even rants about it.
I personally like Gnome for its simplicity, but I also get very frustrated not being able to do some more complex things straight from the desktop.
