Once again the Interface wars December 29, 2006Posted by rjdohnert in Uncategorized.
Over my admitting that I use KDE distributions and KDE on my BSD box the few readers I have left that use GNOME are trying to convert me. Let me start off by saying I dont have a problem with GNOME, I thinks irts a good alternative and if you like that approach more power to you. I prefer KDE. I prefer KDE for many reasons and the fact it emulates Windows is not one of them. I like it because it has a more integrated feel to it, its got a ton of native apps and the applications just seem to work better. I havent changed my mind in the past year. The only GTK app I have on my Kubuntu box is Synaptic, mostly because Adept is retarded. QT is a good development environment and has some great tools and has development tools on all major platforms from Windows to Mac to embedded devices. What little picture editing I do I use Krita, Amarok and Kaffeine are good media applications. The only desktop environment that can probably lure me off of KDE is Enlightenment 17 when it becomes a release. Until then its KDE all the way. Sorry guys.
