You KDE fanbois have you actually used this pile of trash called KDE? Or you are judging it based on screenshots?
I have been using it on Arch for 2 months 4.3.2-4.3.4 and it still has so many bugs it is not funny. I could not even reliebly copy a bunch of files without fear of some missing their target. Dolphin sucked with some major bugs(international encoding for example created zombie files) and i experienced overall instability.
And all these for what? An overall look inspired(in other words copied) from windows vista/7? Some plasma widgets no one is using? A mediocre at best windows style?
I switched to GNOME(again...) and i do not intend to go back to KDE soon. Maybe testing it(4.4) in a VM and that's about it. GNOME is far more reliable and stable at the moment, and for the eye candy factor you could always use a better gtk engine/compiz/cairo-dock and create a modern looking gui. I find it more usable too, and GNOME 3.0 looks really exciting.
Stop saying GNOME sucks just to prove it to yourselves. Most people still use GNOME...
Yeeeeeees! We needed fresh blood for this kind of threads. The old guard was growing tired of each others' faces and they almost had a tacit non-aggression pact. I hope things change with you on board, you sound really promising!

I guess everyone's experience is different, using KDE 4.3 here on Kubuntu and is in general happy with it. Stability is fine (now, was not the case with 4.2) and Samba has issues with national characters anyway so I try to avoid using those. But to be honest, I'm more sold on Qt than KDE, it's a great toolkit to develop it but KDE just isn't that great an example. It works, it's okay but nothing that makes me go wow.
