I'm very satisfied with KDE4, hence I will continue using this.
Gnome and Unity are of no concern to me.

Gonna have to agree on KDE4 for the most part. It's still not flawless, but it's sure improved leaps and bounds since the initial release.

I found the coolest theme and bootsplash for openSUSE ... Ubuntu had a lot of nice features, software, etc. but openSUSE seems to work the best in varied networking environments.

I tried setting them both up in a business environment once ... Ubuntu would not allow the login's the Active Directory (yeah, they were Windoz folks) required ...

(firstname.middle initial.lastname)

johnny.b.goode (example)

but openSUSE not only allowed that but was able to come onboard as a registered workstation in the active directory, using the LDAP and AD for login credentials! Shares, etc. all worked!

For a personal workstation, if you're not used to LINUX, Ubuntu would be fine. I really love it's features and menu system (Ubuntu 2) but when UNITY came out? I spent a while finding the way to turn that "off". Now, I can't seem to get rid of the icon quickbar on the left. Finally just shucked it off and installed openSUSE's latest. I tried KDE this time, and was very VERY impressed!

It appears that gnome is now emmulating Apple, and KDE is emmulating Windows 7 ... not the same, but similar. What I find funny is, Ubuntu comes up with something for their X, and then Apple adds it. Apple then comes up with something, and it appears on Ubuntu.

We live in an interesting world!

I'm glad OpenSUSE worked better for you but it doesn't for everyone. A distro is a very personal choice and IMO there isn't any distro that's "better" or "works better" for everyone. They all work "better" for certain people. That said, I actually use OpenSUSE myself, as well as Ubuntu and Gentoo. For my business, Ubuntu works best, but I prefer OpenSUSE for my multimedia and HTPC =)

Interesting. You're stating all these things as facts, where it is actually just your belief, your 'religion' so to speak. That's fine! But you might want to use that in your text: "I believe that... ".

I don't believe cloning is bad as a definition. When something is taken and improved, it's not bad at all. And that has been done many many times in this world. In fact, one could argue that *everything* is a clone: everything is based on something that existed earlier.

For me, it's quite simple. Many people use KDE and / or Gnome 3 and / or Unity. I've tried them all. I love KDE. I think Gnome 3 is okay but needs to be improved. I think Unity sucks and looks horrible.

Still, that's just my opinion. It's not a given fact that Unity sucks.

Staying true to yourself is generally a good thing. Only problem is, that many people don't have the slightest clue who that is. :-) Finding out about yourself and who you are is a lifelong experience. Same is true for desktop environments. It's a search, a struggle sometimes, and somewhere in its core you can find things that make them unique. Look at what hell we've been through to get to Windows 7.. and it's still far from perfect (in my opinion). :-)

You've covered yourself nicely, saying that if I don't choose to comment on your statements, I am "ignorant". Also, you've commented on my reply quite extensively, Would you really have done the same to a 13 yr old idiot?

You probably (hopefully) don't mean to suggest these things. If you hadn't used those words, I would have commented on everything you write here. I don't call you stupid, ignorant, or a 13 yr old. I'm not even suggesting it. I don't know you at all so there's no point in calling you names.

But as it is, I feel that you don't respect me for who I am. So I don't feel the need to comment on anything you write anymore.

Whatever you may feel, believe, or whatever: treat me and everyone else with respect.. be it north of the northpole or south of it.

That's it. No more comments from my part.

Dear EM,
I think you are a bit too aggressive. Sit and calm down.

You've been insulting Christopher72 with no apparent reason, and with him everyone who think like he does. He's been very nice and, despite being very young, has replied in a very polite way. Most 13 yo would have just replied you with some strange abbreviated insulting language. In this dialog, he just shows how much more mature he is than you are.

We all like opinions. He stated his, while you tried to force your own way on us. Someone who does not agree with you is just retarded?

Only the fact that you think KDE copies Windows shows how little you seem to know of the matter. Have you ever actually *read*, without insulting subtitles, something on PlanetKDE? Have you actually gone into some detail on how this is all done? Or you just think it all is ready and there to copy from? You are just throwing away the (often free) work done by many for many, for a passion more than for a living. A passion you do not share, it is evident.

I actually agree with Christopher72, but this does not change the matter: you are not the only person in the world and your opinion is not more worthy than anyone else's. You do not get to impose what should be what, what shouldn't, what is great and what is rubbish. People who do not like Linux are not idiots. For example, I'm not an Apple fan at all, but I do not think Apple users are idiots. They may have different interests and different personalities. They may need something different than I do.

Linux is not just an emotionsless software.
Respect others and you'll find you'll have a much more relaxed and happy time. If you do not like what you see, try to improve it. THIS is the Linux way of thinking.

At no point in your rambling, incoherent response were you even close to anything that could be considered a rational thought. Everyone in this poll is now dumber for having listened to it.

KDE 4.11 works for me too, although having tried Unity and Gnome 3... I like them both.. the only thing I dislike on Unity is all the promotional type stuff that comes along with it by default.

>They *think* they go their own way. But when you look, Gnome is just a shitty OS X clone, and KDE is just a shitty Windows clone.

I disagree.
There sure are a lot of similarities. The basic concepts are the same after all, that's right.
Well, who cares - after all, those concepts have been in practical use for years and years. They work. At least for the tasks I usually have to do on my computer.

Copying good things is a good idea; most of the time. Many technologies have been elaborated and perhaps even been perfected in that fashion.

>The problem with cloning is: You can never surpass the one you’re following. By definition. As even if the one you’re following turns around and goes backwards, you will follow and do the same.

Correct. But KDE is not cloned, as you assume. As by the definition, cloning would mean to build an exact replica.
You cannot seriously think that KDE is an exact replica of Windows (by Windows I mean only its desktop here, of course).

Maybe KDE was or is inspired by Windows, in the past, presence or future.
I say you can surpass the "original" by just copying the good aspects, and add your own, new and good aspects to your "copy".

Just one example: See the KDE activities and the Plasma desktop for instance. At first I thought they were useless, but now I wouldn't wanna miss them any more. Windows does not have these things.


The rest of your post goes like: "Meh, the Gnome and KDE teams are cowards, they don't dare to deliver something radically new instead of implemented proven, working technology that lets people get shit done."

Hey, why don't you create one. If it's not only you who likes it, you'll be a hero.
There are people who prefer a tiling window manager for instance. They swear it's better. I tried it, I dislike it. So what? You're free to use one if you like, why would you rant and insult me if I just don't have the same taste like you?

Oh, and for your tone - okay we're not exchanging scientific papers here, but on the other hand, we're also not on /b/ here.

Because of Ubuntu's UNITY, I finally went back to openSUSE and their KDE. I can always choose either at login,but really love the new KDE4 stuff!

Goodbye Ubuntu ... you were great until UNITY showed up!

You can have your cake and eat it too. Just install the KDE window manager and/or the plasma desktop(there are others!) in Ubuntu. Or if you don't have it installed already Kubuntu is the KDE spin. I am running KDE on top of Fedora now. In Linux the desktop isn't welded to the underlying system. Gnome is part of the GNU project and KDE/plasma is it's own thing. Unity is run by Canonical, however it is independent of Ubuntu from a user perspective. If you like Ubuntu and KDE, use 'em.

I second that, KDE is really nice.. Some people make the comment that it's like windows 7, no way! I am VERY familiar with all Windows desktops and none are like KDE.. KDE comes at stuff from a completely different place. I changed from Windows to openSUSE and Kubuntu, after trying out Xfce (which I really like too). I find that many GNU/Linux users whine and whinge about differences between distros and desktops, while I, coming from a non-oss background, am amazed at the fact that there's so much choice, communal effort, and innovation happening from all sides. You guys are spoiled for choice, which is great. Nobody's perfect, nor the world either, so split the differences of views, policies and approach and celebrate difference and that we can have these and share them nonetheless.

KDE amazes me more and more each day. I tried Gnome and Unity, but KDE will allow me to do everything I never could do in Windows and more. The idea of Unity seems to be that I need to be protected from my own bad taste!
I don't need so-called un-nessecary options removed. Hidden, maybe. But features shouldn't be thrown away because they aren't trendy. Not every person needs to use every feature at every moment. I see cool things all the time that I file away for future tinkering. I like the Idea that I can have them and use them when I need them (and they won't have been disappeared). I like the idea that KDE is mature and stable enough to make it safe for me to tinker. I don't want them to throw it away and start over because they are bored.
In short, KDE is going in the direction I like, so why move to an immature and in my eyes more restrictive environment. In the case of people who need more hand-holding, why not invest more effort into gnome? Unity could have been a theme for chrisakes!

Gnome and Unity are not to concern me.

For me, KDE and XFCE are fine and stable. Both allow for me to Get-Things-Done with ease. I know where are the options, without having to take time to look.

The new Kickoff style was done by KDE first; Windows copied it as far as I'm aware.

I always set mine to the classic menu mode that we've been using since Windows 95, though. I dislike the new popular menu styles found all over that only let me view one category/subcategory at a time, as it slows me down.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
