Thread: KDE 4 or Gnome?

Hybrid View

  1. #1

    Default KDE 4 or Gnome?

    What do you prefer, and why?
    As of now, I have no real preference, but I've tried out both, and I'd like to get more into KDE, although I think Gnome has a nicer look out of the box.

    I don't yet trust the integration of KDE4 into openSUSE. So I guess I have to say "on temporary practical grounds, KDE3" but I hope the reports from Suse v11 users for KDE4 are good, so I can use it. Good reviews!

    I am using KDE 4 under 10.3 right now and havn't had too many problems.

    One time I had the screen go white and couldn't get it back. I had to Ctrl - Alt - backspace to get out of the x session and start it over.


    it could be my vid card as the Ati 7500 Mobility only kind of works under Linux since when they started adding support they only made it so that card sort of works under linux

    That's very promising, maybe I'll try it on V11 when I install it, thanks

    I was KDE 3.x in 10.3 then went to KDE4 in 11.0 RC1 but had a lot of problems with the interface crashing + coming out of suspend on the laptop.

    Switched to gnome (skipped KDE 3) and it has been rock solid (plus I can use fingerprint to unlock screensaver ).

    Not sure what I will use when 11.0 comes out, probably Gnome until KDE 4.1.

    I use Gnome under SLED at work anyway.

    I use KDE 4. For me, I am more about eye-candy than efficiency. Sure I like things to work well, but any Linux works for me, so the next step is getting one that works well and looks great. KDE 4 competes with Vista's look, so it's a must have. I also like the default KDE applications over Gnome's, so I am used to it. Both are good choices, but minimalism doesn't seem important, both work equally, but one looks better.

    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.
