From GNOME to KDE and back again: old computing habits are hard to break

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 206.207.51.11] on March 21, 2008 10:46 PM
I have a Dell laptop right now, and I'm using Gnome. However, I really favored KDE on Suse due to some really excellent apps: Kile ( the best solution for LaTex I have found) and KTorrent. I plan on going back to Suse and KDE after I finish my dissertation because I don't want to invest the time.

Also, one other thing. I think the top and bottom bar takes up way, way too much space on the desktop, especially when I am writing and want to see a full page. I have moved my menu bars to the right and left sides. However, this is an incomplete solution because the document titles are rendered incorrectly. I wish there was more effort put into the side menu's, as they are much more practical on the modern rectangular laptop screen than top and bottom menu bars.
