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

Habits indeed are hard to break. But I think people don't take time in taking advantage of the customizability of the major Linux desktop environments.
I went from KDE/RH8 -> GNOME/RH9 -> Xubuntu/Dapper -> Xubuntu/Edgy -> Xubuntu/Fiesty
For each installation, I do customization of the desktop layout to suit my taste. But I still install KDE/GNOME to have the best of the 3 worlds.
As for habits, my xterm (gnome-terminal OR xfce's Terminal) is customized to have the keyboard bindings of Konsole! this habit dated back during KDE/RH8.
