    On a machine with 10.3 I switch to KDE 4.0 to get a stable version of kdrc/krfb, which was some of the first 4.0-application.
    That was okay so now I have installed 11.0 Rc1 with KDE 4.0 on another desktop, and so fare very satified.

    When I first started Linux, I started with KDE because I had read that Linus Torvalds favours it and also that Gnome's underlying philosophy is that the users are not experts(I might be wrong as I do not remember the exact words). I have been loving it since then. Recently when I helped my friend install Fedora 9, I had experience of Gnome. It was good but KDE 3 on openSUSE is much better. As for now, KDE 4 isn't matured enough IMHO. So I would stick to KDE 3.

    Suspend/resume issues are X server (driver) related. It should work the same in KDE or gnome. The tweaks are specified in the hal information files ( not a KDE only feature).

    Gnome for me. I've been using KDE for couple of years, then switched to Gnome, it's much nicer then KDE IMHO and more functional. As for KDE4 – maybe in a year or two

    Gnome (as the avatar would suggest).

    Clean and without clutter: only shows what I need.

    I just find the KDE desktop a bit too cluttered.

    Ditto. Started with KDE a couple years ago and moved to Gnome. I sometimes consider going back to KDE but when I use it for awhile, I go back to Gnome. Just get tired of digging for stuff.

    wait a few weeks for KDE 4.1 to come out then give it a shot, you may not be happy with KDE 4.0.

    KDE 3 > KDE 4 > Windows > Gnome
    KDE3 > TWM > Windows (for games I can't get in running in WINE) > MacOS X > GNOME

    Waiting for KDE4 to mature a little more.
