Not an answer, but

AR or AK?

Which interface do you like better XP style or Mac OS?

GNOME.

KDE is too Windows.

Gnome.
That's what I started with, and it's become "comfortable".
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 9:13:22 PM EDT
In the beginning, KDE seemed much better than Gnome, but now I think its really just personal preference
Link Posted: 9/9/2005 9:23:44 PM EDT
I usually go with Gnome. They're just about on equal ground now, so I read, and Fedora installs Gnome by default. My linux-fu is pretty weak.

KDE's underlying i-o framework is better as is the file manager. Default KDE theme is shit, I agree. I have mine in a modified osx layout, changing it is incredibly easy and very flexible.

Gnome, if I had to pick.

Really prefer FluxBox. Nice and minimal. Black background. Black terminals. Grey windows. No bothersome icons.

I use them both, but I prefer to use Enlightenment. Kickass little window manager. Fast as can be.

I use Gnome on Solaris 9 and 10.

Enlightenment runs with GNOME if I'm not mistaken.

Both. I run GTK and QT apps just fine in either. When I'm actually using a desktop environment (I usually don't), I kinda dig Gnome. No reason, just personal preference.

Oh, and Enlightenment RAWKS.

Terminal. Hardly ever touch an X window

On several of my machines I run Xfce.

It's more or less GNOME without all the bells and whistles that drag it down. Neato little interface, I like it.

GNOME

Looks like a majority prefer Gnome. I was curious because I noticed that my install included both. I had been using Gnome and have really liked it. I didnt care for KDE because its seems like there is to much junk.

Anyway, is there a way to get rid of the KDE portion of the install that isnt to in depth?
Link Posted: 9/10/2005 9:40:48 PM EDT
I use KDE on my laptop.

Windowmaker on my workstation.

Gnome on my Redhat test server.

Good ole terminal on my backup/logging server and the host-based IDS server.

I have an interesting networking topology going on at my house you could say.
