I will say this, in order for my laptop (which is new btw) to completely work out the box, I install ubuntu and then I go through synaptic and install KDE/KDM.

Why? Because I don't mind having total control over my DE. My only gripe with Gnome has always been that it feels limited.And I gave Gnome a month before I switched.

Now for those who say KDe feels alot like Windoze? Then let me give you the perfect anology based on how they look. KDE is to Windoze DE as Gnome is to OSX.

give Gnome OSX like features and trust noone will have a gripe. But as long as KDE gives me the flexibility and systemwide abilities that I need in a DE, then my pick will always be KDE.
