I tried KDE a good couple of times. I always go back to Blackbox. I guess l33tness factor with blackbox is much higher :-D

I used to be a Fluxer and a WindowMakerer, I tried KDE 3.0 with Gentoo and Mosfets Liquid and can't go back to anything else.
8) KDE 3 8)
8) Mosfets Liquid 8)
Why that's EXACTLY what I have, and exactly my sentiments I'm loving this Gentoo thing, and I'm definitely digging the KDE 3. Mosfet is a madman!

I disagree, if you're running a lower-end system (like mine), on which KDE runs like a dog, it's very, very easy to go back to a lightweight WM like Fvwm.
That's very true. If I was running a crappy system, I wouldn't even think of using KDE, nor recommending it for somebody with a lower-end system. But when the system is good enough, KDE rocks because it's very flexible and good-looking, although it *is* bloated.

what large project isn't bloated?
don't say OpenOffice because openoffice uses it's own GUI toolkit instead of using GTK or QT so that could be considered as bloat too
personally, i don't mind the bloat
hell i love it even
i install the full KDE releases everytime even though i hardly use a lot of the extra applications. but i think it's nice to have the ability to use them and when someone comes over here and i wanna impress them with Linux/KDE i can say: "look at all these programs that come with this system and it's all free"
