What I care about is synergy. How it all fits together. There are some good features in one place. That when combined with good features in another place. Create something with just the right "wow" factor. I tend to find that KDE tries to deliver that.

I have never seen before the stuff KDE 4 is doing with the Maximize button. I.E. left click maximize, right click maximize horizontally only, left click maximize vertically only. As Morris Moss would say, "Brilliant!" Then there is the hold down the alt key and left click to move the window, right click to RESIZE the window. Even if these are only incremental improvements. They synergy is fabulous.

I am expecting these things to become standards in the linux community. Fluxbox, Enlightenment and XFCE will probably pick these features up in the next year or so. And yes, even gnome.
