I just read about the new version of KDE. I prefer Gnome, but there are so many KDE features that appeal me. Now it feels like KDE is getting improved. Canonical, the company behind Ubuntu has announced that there next long term support version will be Gnome only, and Kubuntu will not be supported for long term. The reason behind the decission is the developer focus on KDE4. It is changing fast so it is not possible to offer long term support for it.
I often try to install KDE and try to develop a taste for it. But each time I end up frustrated with one thing or the other. Many of my friends are KDE fans and they think that Gnome is for grandmother and children. I want to discover why KDE is so great to them. Right now I think Gnome is the best, but I would be happier if the new KDE changes my opinion, as this will give me more choice and I will be enjoying different Desktop environments whenever I am bored with the one I am using at that time.
