i voted for Gnome... the people on this forum who know me from a couple of years ago will probably remember that i was a die hard KDE fan and pretty anti-Gnome. But i wanted to give Gnome a fair chance so ever since 2.4 came out i've been using it, have gotten used to it, and actually started liking it. The reason why i prefer Gnome over KDE is because it's more intuitive. From a technical perspective i still think Gnome is a piece of shit whereas KDE is a thing of beauty. I'm also pretty sure that KDE will always be the more advanced of the two because of it's OO-nature and extremely clean design (not the interface, but the code). But until KDE gets as user friendly and intuitive as Gnome, i'm sticking with Gnome.
