The thing I find anoying about GNOME and all those GTK+, etc. stuff is that GNOME is pure dependency hell. For instance, I *must* install Evolution, just to get the desktop rolling. This sucks. I use GMail, coulnd't care less about a desktop e-mail client. As so the list goes...Lots and lots of interdependencies and little modularity. KDE is much more modularized. I also happen to think that OOP in GNOME, compiled with gcc (because it's OOP in C) is hitting a wall in performance (compiler designers, please explain - my point being that this is because of deep reasons - if you're going to compile OOP code, better have an optimnising compiler for it).
