    I think that both pretty much run alike, I heard a lot people saying that gnome runs faster...
    I like KDE since a few of the app im using require kde...

    I've heard the same thing that Ugo has, Gnome is generally considered faster. I don't see it, I think they're both about the same.

    Keep in mind that with either one you can slim it down by just installing the packages you want rather than using the 'gnome' and 'kde' metapackages that install *all* of either of the DEs.
