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.

If you take time to tweak KDE it is glorious. Gnome is very simple and clean, and I like both. But on a day-to-day basis, I love using KDE 3.4.

Yeah, you can make them look good/normal, but KDE is slower (it seems to me) and winxp alike.

I prefer KDE, since it's incredibly intuitive....at first I thought this was because I've used XP for such a long time....but after I tried gnome, I felt like there were a lot of features missing... and a lack of conveniences.

Out of curiosity I installed KLDE on my Ubuntu setup. Played with it for about one hour and decide I preferred Gnome. Some think the options galore of KDE is what makes it better, if that is the case then great for you. For me it was too much stuff to have. Gnome's simplicity was a postive for me rather than a negative.

As for th Crystal Iconset in KDE, yeah it is great. So good, in fact, that I installed it in Gnome. ;)

I feel more at home in Gnome, but I think Konqueror beats the pants off of nautilus

Maybe I should just use fluxbox with apps from both

and used it in your sig and avatar? ;)

when i used mepis on a livecd, gnome was faster than KDE. but KDE in yoper is faster than any gnome ive used so the speed is not an issue for me. the customization options are like heaven to me after using xp.

gnome isnt as robust as KDE from my experiences. konsole is the most fully featured terminal ive seen and konqueror is the best file manager of any OS.

also, KDE's windecos use C code instead of pixmaps(although you can use iceWM pixmaps if needed) so the windecos have more effects and look cooler.

one thing i like in gnome is the minimalistic feel. but you can still customize KDE to be like that.

Edit: and KDE 3.4 is considerebly faster tahn previous releases and less bloated. it is also VERY stable and it is still in beta. it looks like it will be an awesome release.

I would say KDE, yes, it looks olike a dog, but integration is just so much better than gnome. And its a hell of a lot more productive for me. For some reason i keep on drifting back to KDE, even though xfce is great, it just doesnt have the integration of KDE.
