    KDE and Windows are light years ahead compared to Gnome when comes to configuration.

      KDE maybe, but windows why? You can't change something but your theme.

        I can configure my screen saver at least. However, maybe C# will allow them to implement this killer feature in Gnome I forgot to mention I meant Windows apps compared to Gnome apps. When comes to KDE not only apps are far more configurable, but DE itself.

          Can Nautilus do split window layout yet?

          I find this one aspect of Dolphin absolutely golden when moving files around.

            Gnome aims to simplicity rather than functionality. Different philosophy, not necessarily censurable. But always you can configure enough of your apps and desktop through the gconf-editor. The rsult with Gnome is a simpler experience, while with KDE a more functional one. With Linux you always choose

              Open source doesn't stop anyone from creating plugins, but I sincerely remember KDE speaking against the latest MS doc format .docx... The funny part was that Gnome, which is suposedly totally GNU/FLOSS, wants to support it all.

              That's probably why Gnome wants to split from GNU/FSF...

                Yes, Linux gives many options to choose from

                  The KOffice developers were pretty involved in the ODF spec, and were very vocal about how bad they thought MS's OOXML spec was. They have never been against including compatibility, though. They have always been very limited in developer manpower, and trying to reverse engineer support for a closed format was going to take tons of work. Even with MS recently opening the specs, it was going to take a lot of development time and they have been focusing more on just getting koffice to run correctly. For example, they recently focused on getting table support working - reading Word documents isn't going to be much good if it can't even display a table correctly. When the news came out about Nokia implementing MS Office compatibility, it was featured pretty prominently by the devs, so I don't think you can say they are against it.

                    Some Gnome developers want that, not the Gnome foundation in general.
