gnome looks like something youd see at a public library.

you can customize them both.

I like KDE's integration, but that's about it.

I prefer GNOME... KDE's great, I like it, but it really feels like it's copying Windows for the most part (although Crystal, it's icon set, is truly awesome... but it gets a little tiresome due to it's amount of pure saccharine sweetness). GNOME take a lot of inspiration from a few other places, but I really get the feeling that I'm using a next-generation environment playing with it, and I see more of the Linux Cool Things getting integrated in it for the next release. It's icons have enough flash and coolness to 'em that they're interesting, but they're simple and understated enough that I could keep using them day after day - kinda like win95+IE4/98/2k/me. Of course, both desktop environments make me feel like my current computer is a worthless pile of dog poo, even if they are both better than the XP desktop. Yay for ICEWM.

I'm a fluxboxer.

If I had to choose between KDE or Gnome, I would choose KDE, as it just fit how I worked better, and felt more comfortable to me.

I like gnome.. mainly because I like hte footprint in gnome  :yes:

That would be called a "large" footprint. ;)

And for the side question of what works best at 1024x768, they both will work equally well/unwell. I have gotten away from the desktop icons thing, as they tend to just be clutter.

KDE really needs to get its act together, a while ago I would have said KDE, but I'm definitely a GNOME guy now, KDE just seems too cluttered and unorganized to me.
