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

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 124.170.228.33] on March 22, 2008 01:20 AM
I use Kubuntu. A few months ago I tried to get Gnome to work but it didn't seem to like the fact that my PC (back then) used an on-board video. The result was a very unhappy Gnome experience.

I use Firefox, Thunderbird and OpenOffice. I think KDE should ditch its K-based browser/email/office suite for these alternatives, but I haven't had any problem in installing or running them.

Moreover, I'm very much an untergeek. I rarely, if ever, use the command line and I use my PC mainly to surf the net, send emails, blog and as a word processor.
