Gnome or KDE?

This is a discussion on Gnome or KDE? within the A Brief History of Cprogramming.com forums, part of the Community Boards category; I'm deciding which window manager to use on my new FreeBSD installation. What do you think?...

    i thought there should be more explaination on that, too... not everyone here should be experienced in linux to post here.

    linux has a way of customizing desktops. XFree86 is linux's way of displaying graphics, and Gnome/KDE both are ways to make XFree86 look pretty and work well.


    i prefer gnome for its relative simplicity. with the improvement of nautalus and the redhat package manager, i think gnome is a better choice. in kde, every other time the opening sound byte plays it cuts off in mid speech.

    Ive used kde at home for a while, but I am not currently running linux anymore . I used gnome at school, I like them both. You should be able to install both, and when you login you choose which one you would like to use during that session. That way you can test out both, and use the one you prefer.

    i believe you can install both and do that if you want... you just need to initialize XFree86 with specific commands like gnome-session or the kde equivalent.

    KDE for me
    No I DIDN'T steal my name from Misro$ofts OS, it's pure coincidence.

    The lines around my name (-) are only there because i needed a name over the 3 character minimum letter limit

    I started out with KDE, then tried GNOME, afterwards WindowMaker and Fluxbox (blackbox) and finally Afterstep. This last one is absolutely the best (totally configurable, easy, yet fun and makes your desktop look really really c00l). Really, If you haveng tried it, its a MUST.

    Gooooooooooooo afterstep
