    Great to see the final version is coming soon. Btw. If you're comparing so many things why not to make some desktop environments comparison one day? :> You know, features, look, customization options, usability, applications, techs used etc.

      Are you crazy? You really want to show how bad GNOME is?

        KDE SC 4.4 is totally awesome but don't try Kubuntu Lucid dailys if you want to have a look on it... they're horribly broken still.

            Just to enhance awareness among some people - Linux newbies, Ubunters etc.

            I thought about trying it, but I'm using Karmic right now and I assume it will be the same.

            It seems it's the time to switch.

              Yea, you could say that sentance to Torvalds since he also expressed a similar thing towards gnome. I'de rather use Windows Visa/7 UI instead of GNOME.

              How can you even ask for a comparison between the DE? Between GNOME, kde4, Mac UI and Windows 7 UI, guess who's going to lose?

              It's like asking Michael to compare ATI vs NVIDIA drivers.

                I'm not asking for benchmarks I'd love to see KDE, Gnome and XFCE compared to each other. Without winners or losers

                  Yea I understood For example for me it makes more sense to use XFCE instead of GNOME. Just an opinion.

                    I just wish they would tackle this obsession they seem to have with battleship grey. Seriously who thinks a block of grey is a good idea for a window theme? Gnome is pretty bad in this regard too but that's no excuse.

                      All of them, DE's suck.

                      Standalone compiz is the best.

                        You never try Kubuntu period if you want to see what KDE is like. Buggy, quirky, inconsistant quality. They're the new Mandrake Linux.

                          Ditto. It's to bad people insist on judging it with Kubuntu

                            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...
