The funniest thing...

Posted by: Anonymous Coward on February 18, 2007 07:18 PM
... about this discussion is that for all the smack talk about Gnome and KDE, nobody really ever says anything that one environment can do that the other can't. No specifics at all. Mainly just spitballs.

And I couldn't help but notice, being a Gnome user myself, that most of the vitriol is hurled from KDE users to Gnome. I challenge any of you to try the current version of Gnome (the default desktop on Ubuntu is a good representation) and tell me five things that are wrong with it from a user interface standpoint. I think Gnome has really matured over the last couple of years, and has a lot going for it.

There are definitely a couple of better KDE applications, like Amarok and k3b, but these are fully usable under Gnome, so that's not an issue. I'm talking about the main interface, the desktop.
