    then, use Gnome...it is perfectly capable of providing you a stable
    and worry free system..

    otherwise, try KDE3.5.9 or any of the other windows/desktop
    managers--that is, stay away from KDE4.0

    quote "mingus725" who wrote the following (much better than i could
    ever) on 13 Aug 2008:

    "KDE 4 is still very young. It is recommended only for experienced
    users who can hack their way around problems. If you have not
    upgraded from the installed 4.0 to 4.1, you can try that; 4.1 is much
    better. But still, it is undergoing active development and at times
    things don't work right. You would just have to see. The better bet
    would be to install KDE 3.5.9; you can do that and leave KDE 4.1
    installed, too. KDE 3.5.9 is very mature and stable. You could then
    use 3.5.9 as your primary gui, and occasionally update your 4.1 and
    check it out; when your 4.1 is stable, you can switch to it as your
    primary. Many very experienced openSUSE users are sticking with 3.5.9
    until 4.x has had time to mature."

    Thaks for Suggestion..I am using GNOME now.

    Why Gnome can detect the Graphics driver and KDE is not able to do that.

    I found it strange. I think driver should be independent from the desktop env. Please correct if I am wrong.
    Thanks in advance

    Doesn't KDE4 use compositing by default? This may cause problems e.g. on a laptop with an uncommon graphics adaptor. Gnome and KDE3 do not use compositing by default, so should work.

    PS Intel 965 is pretty mainstream though. Gnome and KDE 3 are cool, try them both.
