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

Posted by: Anonymous [ip: 68.109.116.39] on March 25, 2008 02:51 PM
I also am using Gnome again after a lot of years with KDE, The last time I used Gnome was around redhat 8.0, Redhat decided to make the switch and so did I so I tried Knoppix and loved it and had been using KDE since. I installed KDE4 on my Ubuntu dell laptop and found it very much like Gnome but with almost no reconfigurability, I also noticed that Gnome seemed to run much faster-"SMOOTHER" and like the author I had the same issues with the KDE-network-manager ALSO like the author I did install kubuntu over ubuntu...on a different note I recently installed E17 and WOW , when I click on Firefox it opens instantly. Now if only we could get KDE, GNOME and Enlightenment people working together could you imagine what would come out of that!!!
