Frankly, the KDE/Gnome argument to me is overblown. Both are good. And
I use programs from both. But that to me is the key. I use programs, I
don't use desktops. So for the past few years I've used neither.
Curious: what do you use if not KDE or Gnome?

These days Blackbox. I've also used Sawfish. I've experimented a bit
with Enlightenment and WindowMaker, but for my working style Blackbox
and Sawfish were the best for me.
To me, coming up with a computer configuration that works the way I
work is important to my efficiency. I use keyboard shortcuts as much
as practical. Except for editing photos and browsing, I find a mouse
slows me down, so I find desktop icons worthless. And, like I said in
the previous post, since I run everything nearly full-size, a pretty
desktop is irrelevant.
But my style may not be your style. Some people find they need a
Technicolor extravaganza. And your needs may change as you incorporate
new programs and discard others.
It's nice to have choice.
