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

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 68.21.42.226] on March 22, 2008 12:17 PM
I use KDE because its layout is more efficient--everything is at the bottom of the screen and my cursor does not have to fly around the screen to get things done. Of course with Gnome, you have some stuff at the bottom and some at the top. Last summer -- partially as an experiment and partially out of necessity (I screwed up the K part of Kubuntu)--I reconfigured Gnome to look like KDE: got rid of the top toolbar, relocated all of the buttons I needed to the bottom. It worked pretty well, but I just could not get past the point that some Gnome tools don't seem to have the capability that KDE's tools have (the menu editor comes to mind).

So I am back on KDE in Kubuntu and loving it...
