Re: KDE vs. GNOME: The Smackdown

I love KDE, but I hate Kubuntu. For whatever reason, it was always slow and crashy for me. On the other hand, Mandriva's KDE was really awesome. The only reason I still use GNOME+Ubuntu is because Ubuntu's repos are bigger (and as I said, I think Kubuntu sucks). Overall, though, I have to say I use/...
