    Subject: The Differences Between GNOME and KDE

    doesn't know how to make a subject vs a message body post
    Here we have an anonymizing googlegrouping crossposting troll whose
    favorite OS is....

    Perhaps he doesn't know anything about gnome, kde, window managers,
    desktop environments, or their alternatives. Perhaps it the anonymous
    troll is a winblower.

    Welcome to the Windopz De-Pistification FAQette.

    WoW that was a mouthful wasn't it boys and girls?!

    Let me explain:

    You bought vista crap from our sponsor micoshaft corporation
    and you realize after hours of reboots and re-installs
    that our sponsor micoshaft has taken the piss out of you. So you
    decide that this vista Pista is not for you.
    Now you want to de-install Pista but expee takes up even
    more hours and all your driver
    diskettes are mislaid/lost and application cds are fscked
    because your dog has been shagging it for some time, etc, etc, etc.
    Oh Smuck is me you cry out in vain as your PC craps out on you
    leaving you with nothing despite you having paid truck loads of money.

    Then light at the end of the tunnel appears in the form
    of Linux. Now you get angry and use Linux in anger to recover
    you data. RAAAAARRRrrrr... you growl through into the night
    recovering data, learning GNU/Linux and by midnight all your
    work is done, your computers are working, you learned many
    things and Linux with Beryl is the king. You can sleep in peace
    knowing Linux is your friend and share your dreams
    with others...

     Get Linux here...

     For Beryl, downloaded latest beta release
     of Ubuntu (Feisty Fawn)...

     Install Beryl using the 3 click guide which links from here...

     And so WoW, after 3 clicks, you have Beryl up and running on your PC!!!
    All that remains is now for you to stick the De-Pistification
    Inventory label on your PC to complete the job...

    That's true at both sucks.
    gnome have less bugs as kde, but kde have more possibilities of settings.

    As example, I will never use gnome because I just cannot configure the
    mouse to work as I want it. And I don't use kde anymore because I don't
    like to have to fight against undocumented features in order to get things
    to work the way I like it.

    It you want an outstanding wm with infinite and well documented features,
    look for fvwm. If you want more as a wm, a DE (desktop environement), look
    for fvwm-crystal.

    If you have the patience to learn it (fvwm-crystal is
    fvwm, but much more easier to learn because it just work from the first
    run and have a modular configuration), I am sure at you will like it and
    look at gnome and kde with a little smile on your face.

    The current KDE 3.5.5 is very bug-free and you really don't have to
    "learn" it. Just choose a distro that installs it as default. I run both
    GNOME and KDE apps on KDE with no problems or quirks.

    I know at the recent kde versions have less bugs such as memory leak. And
    they are more usable as the older versions.

    I used suse that use kde as default DE under many years, but I really
    prefer gentoo now.

    And I call an undocumented feature a bug. Example: the MIDI wrapper
    configuration in kde control panel. What the f. is this? You have to
    search in kmid files to find the answer!!! How a newbie can know that and
    find the answer???!!!

    I prefer to run kde and gnome applications on fvwm-crystal, because with
    fvwm, i just can do whatever I want to do, when with other wm-de as gnome
    and kde, I can only do, exactly as with window$, what they are thinking
    at I want to do. And it is a huge difference between those 2 ways of
    making things.

    That said, kde is an outstanding wm for a linux newbie, much better as

    My two cents:
    It isn't really about whether they are good or not. It is about which
    one "gets the job done". Both include a bunch of programs that make
    normal Linux Admin tasks easier, so they can both get the job done.

    I MUCH prefer KDE. It looks similar to Windows 98/XP/Server2003 and
    hopping between Windows Clients and the Linux Server is quicker and
    easier (for me) with KDE. But if someone has installed Ubuntu, you
    don't just go installing KDE on top of it and mess up their system.
    They are paying you to fix it, not break even more.

    In terms of running a business, it is all about ROI (return on
    investment), not preference. My "preference" is just my pride singing
    sweet songs of snobbery. What is the quickest way I can get a Linux
    server to add file shares, change an Apache configuration, modify the
    php config, dink with MySQL, curse at Samba, etc?

    Ironically, because of all the variety in windows managers, I end up
    relying on emacs and modifying the configurations directly, or using
    the specific distribution's custom configuration manager and using the
    windows manager as a way to have multiple command prompts open on the
    screen at the same time.

    Just a rant from a Ventura Linux repair guy.
