Default KDE or Gnome

Since i'm new to linux i want to learn as much as possible so i will try to do a lot in cli mode, but i also need a GUI.

So now my question is: which is the best and why? KDE or Gnome or ...

KDE is a bit more like the windows look & feel, has a tremendous amount of apps/games and looks okay.

Gnome looks a bit more like Max OSX, has a limited amount of apps (feels less like bloatware), and looks excellent.

I used to use KDE, but I just *love* the looks/user interface of Gnome > 2.4. : )

xfce4 !!

RB: when typing emerge -av gnome
you see what apps come with it ... I mean wtf that's a huuuge list, even browser, music player, ... included in the desktopmanager

true gnome2.6 is $$$$ but xfce4 is so much nicer imo (yes I know it's using gnome libraries)

just my 2cents

maybe something else: some say: dropline is great
haven't tried it tho

XFCE4 is my favourite lightweight desktop too.

I don't use lightweight desktops on a 2.5Ghz A64 though. I'm very happy with gnome 2.8, feels much more stable than 2.6.

That huuuuuge list that comes with gnome can be diminuished by "emerge -av gnome-light". Only the desktop & the filemanager & the gnome-terminal will be emerged then.

Thanks for the gnome-light tip Mangum!

I introduced Ubuntu (with gnome 2.8) at work last week for a few non-critical desktops, and windows users seem to love it. Intuitive and pretty desktop free of spyware/viri rox.
