KDE = yummy goodness these days. People were put off after the immature 4.0x releases - and they're still living down that one - but the later releases have been ridiculously competent. Each time I give GNOME a go, it usually ends in frustration (I'd rather use something either properly minimalist or properly maximalist, if that's a word). Unity. Yes, been meaning to try it. What surprises me is that I thought most people would say, "...screw it, I'll use Kubuntu", but I guess it shows how much GNOME users don't like KDE, and vice versa. Weird.
