    KDE-Gnome


    Yo.

    Sorry for the cheesy question, but one has to learn from someone (rather than reformat his hard disk for the nth time).

    Which desktop system IS really better?

    I've used KDE, and I'm happy with it's user friendly looks, and while I've always thought of Gnome as being dry and hard to use, I've seen pix on the web of a KDE-like Gnome interface.

    Just for my interest, I would like to know which one is the better one for a person who looks for 'user-friendly' features.

    It all boils down to personal preference. I used KDE for quite a while, mainly because I got used to it. I have now started to use Xfce, which is lighter and faster than both Gnome and KDE.

    If you are happy with KDE, that's all you need. If you want, you can always try out gnome and see how you like it (or IceWM, or Xfce, of Fluxbox, or ...).

    Use Yast2, to install, 644kb is no where near a full gnome-installation.

    to install something from the command line, cd to the directory where it is, then:
    Code:
    rpm -ivh <rpm-name>
    I personally prefer gnome and enlightenment e17, mainly gnome, as it is faster and less bloated, it gives me a simple, straight-to-the-point interface, and has therefore been my default for about 4 years.
