        KDE sucks. Why don't you people just use Gnome? Everybody else does.

            KDE4.3-4.4 are great! I'm just thinking about switching to main use of kde after my exams took place.

            for my laptop i'm not quite sure if it's a good Idea to switch. Does anyone know how hardly it impacts battery life in comparison to gnome?

                  not sure about gnome or even actual battery life, but when upgrading from kde 3.x to 4.x I noticed that my laptop got significantly hotter. I'd guess it was due to compositing and animating everything, resulting in higher GPU frequencies.
                  Disabling compositing or switching to the lightweight XRender based mode might have helped. No idea, I went back to 3.x because 4.2 failed every time I attached an external projector. I'll have to try 4.4 again soon.

                    That was quite clever.

                    I'm not big into the whole KDE vs GNOME fanboy nonsense, but I think it's more than fair to compare them from a technical standpoint. The biggest selling point of Gnome 3 was gnome shell. Well now we have a problem:

                    http://www.kde.org/announcements/4.4/

                    If you look at the videos, almost everything Gnome 3 promised is already implemented with the updates to Plasma. All fanboy BS aside, Gnome is yet again lagging behind KDE in terms of features and functionality. As usual, Gnome is saying they're going to implement something, while KDE is too busy actually producing.

                      Hat off to you, sir.

                      Not to mention that xterm runs so much faster on KDE 3.5 than on 4.4. It's amazing how anyone could stand to use KDE 4.4 with such bad xterm performance.

                          Dude you used to be on of the most covert and innovated trolls on Phoronix. Sometimes I felt compelled to respond even though I knew you were trolling. I mean it was just THAT good.

                          What happened to you?

                            I blame the 1' edit window.

                            Nope, kidding, my previoius post was serious. I mean, I *was* trolling, but not in the way you think.

                            You see, earlier today I came across a blog post where someone mentioned that his bash script took 2 minutes to run on Konsole4 vs 30 seconds on Konsole3. (Link: Why I won't use KDE 4.) And although this may be a valid complaint, it *is* pretty ridiculous (hey, just KMS to the console if speed is so important, will you?)

                            The kicker? The guy is using KDE3 and his blog is aggregated on planet gnome.

                            How can you pass up such an opportunity?

                            Then again, Gnome does look like Win2000 so you never know. (Yes, it's been upgraded from Win98, at least according to the commenters on that blog. Cool!)

                              You can perhaps hope that he doesn't post again so that he can retain his 1337 post count.
