    I use KDE here mostly. Every once in awhile I will switch to Gnome though.

    I like KDE better. In GNOME, everything is huge. Besides, I don't like GNOME's colors. I know they are all customizable, but that is my impression.

    KDE. Never been a fan of gnome, beyond their logo.

    KDE rules with an iron fist!

    I like gnome, no particular reason...just that I happened to use that first and got used to it. Tried out KDE for a bit, didn't really like it much

    Gnome just doesn't cut it.

    It is better. More functions, mor eeverything. It's like you would ask why people use Windows Explorer (Windows Desktop since Windows 95) over Program Manager (Windows Desktop in Windows 3.0-3.11)...

    I use KDE! RedHat 7.3 Professional RULES! StarOffice also!

    I don't, I think it looks way too cartoonish and childish. I used Gnome as my first ever, and even after using Gnome for only 15 minutes or so, when I started up KDE I hated it. Always have. I haven't installed KDE 3 yet, maybe there are some improvements. I just think that it looks too cluttered, and don't even want to take the time to customize it.

    Enlightenment is the best IMHO, I use it and love it.

    NEITHER. Both are slow, bloated memory hogs that do nothing but get in my way, but that's just my opinion. I use Window Maker.

    I like Gnome + Enlightenment.

    True it is big and bulky to start with, but there are settings you can use to make the menu smaller, etc. and to make the system look nicer as a whole.

    I've never liked KDE much.

    I use KDE, but usually find myself doing things from command line because its quicker. Then again, I started out using server installs, so the workstation install was a new thing to me.

    GNOME!!!!

    I'm in the minority here it appears but I like gnome. I'm not into the gnome vs kde/ vi vs emacs flame wars though. Just a personal preference.

    Both window managers look bad. They are just copy of windows GUI. Nothing unique about them. Get blackbox or something like that.

    I have to work, I need apps to work with.

    Kmail
    Konsole
    Konqueror

    I simply seem to be able to get more DONE in KDE, Gnome looks good, but I just can't "work" in it for long.

    What do you mean I'm not in shape? Round is a shape too, isn't it?

    ...but you don't need to use KDE to run KDE apps. I use some KDE programs in Window Maker, including KMail and Konsole. Why doesn't anyone else use Window Maker?

    Yep I have also been using KMail for the past couple of days (replacing Mozilla Mail), works perfectly fine and I use Enlightenment.
