the whole GNOME vs. KDE things just about two different things:
- User vs. Developer (Power user)
- “Sit and go” vs. “Tweak and ride”
which are actually the same. KDE is beautiful and powerful for developers while GNOME is more biased towards creating a simple GUI that works for 80% of tasks of 80% of people. That’s all.
P.S.: some home reading.
