    Lightbulb Can someone answer my question please - does this coem with KDE or GNOME?

    Hello, I'm new to opensuse, and linux for that matter.

    on this link >>> Software.openSUSE.org

    I clicked the first downlad

    " 4.7GB DVD
    Contains a large collection of software for desktop or server use. Suitable for installation or upgrade."

    When I have downloaded this, what does it coem with KDE, or GNOME?
    OR, does it give you the option to use either or, or both, in the installation?

    Which is better KDE or GNOME>

    It comes with both and you can use either. If you install both, you can select the desktop when you log in.

    Ahh, Thank you.

    Which would you say is the best?

    Also, do you know how I can get a good reliable dock on it?

    Thank you for your reply.

    kde and gnome are both excellent and powerful


    see this slideshow of an install

    With the dvd that you burn, make sure you do this before proceeding with install

    I use kde, but I'm inclined to say go with gnome.

    I personally prefer kde but on some machines I work also with gnome, but
    there is no answer to what is the best, because different people like
    different desktops.

    For documentation look at

    http://tiny.cc/KzvNL

    there are gnome and kde user guides and opensuse reference manual and
    startup guide from novell.

    • If you like fancy useless stuff, go for KDE.
    • If you prefer a cleaner desktop, go for Gnome.
    • If you have less than ... let's say 512 MB of RAM, go for XFCE.

    hahaha !! i wouldn't describe it any way different. It looks like KDE is going towards the "we want a shiny, full blown, jam packed" desktop, while Gnome does keep a more clean working area.

    But still - i prefer KDE - ever since i installed openSuse over 4 years ago, and on my Kubuntu (Ubuntu with KDE) machines as well.

    Well, I firstly installed KDE, which I didn't get on with, I now have GNOME, which is much nicer, cleaner, and I think it looks better.
