If G is dep. hell, then KDE is configuration hell

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 18, 2007 12:45 AM
GNOME has a lot of dependencies, and it might take more time to install it. You don't need to install everything like Evolution, etc., if you don't use a binary hell distro like noobuntu or whatever. If you use LFS, consider switching to Gentoo, change the USE-flags and start emerge. That's all.

GNOME provides a clean, uncluttered and elegant user interface, unlike KDE, which takes several hours of studying the interface and preference windows before you are able to change the configuration, which takes additional hours.

What GNOME should do, is providing more features and configurability. Not TOO MUCH! But just some more, _while_ keeping good and pleasant defaults.
