    It largely depends on preference. There is a plethora of apps
    designed for both. Gnome has been around a little longer, KDE seems
    to have a faster development cycle. More distributions tend to
    support KDE than Gnome these days, many support both. Its simply a
    matter of taste.

    I personally prefer KDE.

    PLEASE do note that "kde" requires more memory than gnome so gnome is
    better in that respect ,both of them has advantages and disadvantages.

    if you have more memory it not a problem to use kde.

    it is up to you to decide.

    Seems that KDE has a whole load of things. GNOME (since 2.0) has pared
    down the number of apps it includes by default, I think to make sure that
    what it does include works well.

    Personally, I prefer GNOME... I'll always pick a GNOME app over a KDE one.
    But that's just me.

    It beat me every time.
    That's why I use Linux.

    Yeah. I was told about the land on the moon, $299 for an acre.

    I would suggest that you try them for yourself. I have always had the
    feeling that KDE was "better" or "more complete" and that Gnome was
    "lighter". I tend to use KDE on systems with sufficient horsepower and
    Gnome on slower equipment. I do, however, use GTK for software development
    (unless I use X/Motif). XFCE is also worth exploring - IMHO.

    Bull Shit.

    Red Hat has made that system and they deliver their products with
    GNOME by default. They also have made investments on GNOME project as
    far as I know, and GNOME official web pages are hosted under Red Hat.

    I'm in minority with prefering GNOME under KDE, but I use some KDE
    software (k3b, kppp, ksnapshot). I like Fluxbox and Wmaker also, and
    xfce4 is also very nice.

    You can have'em both on your machine and you'll see which one of these
    best suits your needs. Just try'em both, there is nothing you can
    loose ;)

    This is like mixing apples and giraffes. RPM is a *text* utility and
    a file type (basically, an archive for installing software); however,
    graphical managers for RPM do exist -- e.g., gnorpm. I don't know
    what KDE has for handling RPMs.

    Have you investigated this statement in order to establish the veracity
    of your informant?

    Secondly, why did you need to know?

    I like to load most Gnome stuff, and run it under fluxbox, icewm, or xfce.
    Currently using xfce a lot.

    Plug in a Kodak digicam to either and they will both blow up on your
    face. Maybe that will keep you out of the photography NG's.

    There are times when the Linux naming conventions *do* make sense. :)
