I find the problem with the Gnome/KDE war is most of the popular apps are GTK based. If it wasn't for that I would be using KDE right now. But Firefox (which has StumbleUpon and Konq does not), Beryl, OpenOffice (which out of the box seem to use GTK) and Eclipse all use GTK.

Even KDE uses some libgnome stuff for their XML.

So even if I don't like Gnome that much, I would use it, then get frustrated and switch to Windows, but then switch back because I feel masochistic and want to waste my time.
