    Arrow How many run openSUSE Gnome?

    I'm thinking about running openSUSE Gnome and am curious how many other people here are running Gnome as their primary desktop?

    I get the feeling that KDE has the larger percentage of users, but I want to get a feel for other Gnome users.

    I've tried KDE, and while I like KDE 4.x when I am looking at it, when it comes time to work with it I find it just doesn't work for me.

    That, and I want to fool around some with Mono which, while it does work in KDE, it is more orientated towards Gnome.

    KDE does have a larger percentage of users, but there are many like us
    who prefer GNOME.

    Actually, I mostly run Xfce, but next best thing for me is Gnome. KDE, never touch the stuff.

    Friends don't let friends KDE.

    KDE all the way here. Never really liked the looks of GNOME and how it does stuff. When it comes to openSUSE, the majority use KDE but there're quite a few who use GNOME

    I am also a Gnome fan.

    I have tried all versions of KDE, and even if the 4.3 version is good, I can't keep using it.

    I like the clean and simple interface that Gnome offers. In comparison, KDE looks messy to me and I don't like spending time on the interface.

    Also, most of my favorite applications are gtk ones, so, of course, with Gnome they integrate perfectly.

    So I won't switch and I am looking forward Gnome 3.0, which already shapes well.

    Absolutely. We should cast aside these petty squabbles, and in the name of all that is right and true, unite against the common enemy; emacs.
