I just loaded Gnome, about a week ago for suse 10.3.
I have been using KDE for a while and decided to try a new Desktop.

All I can say is Gnome sure is a dissapoinment so far.
The Laytout is very restrective, a can't seem to change the start pannel or whatever it is!
There so far is no mutiple desktops (if there is how to activate?).

Other then that I think KDE is better.

Maybe I will change my opnion as time goes on -)
