KDE has lured me

I’m afraid it is true. I have finally abandoned GNOME (after being loyal for 6+ years) for KDE. I was curious as to what KDE was like these days and after mucking around in it for a week, I don’t want to leave.

There is a nice summary here about some of the reasons why. The only thing I’m having trouble with is letting go of Firefox to use Konqueror…

I disown you!

Haven’t used Amarok but have been liking Banshee under Gnome.

You should really check it out, it has changed an awful lot. Plus QT is GPL’ed now!

QT has been GPL’d for years now… 😛

I used to use KDE way way back. I really really liked the KIOSlaves and Gnome does not have any decent equivalent yet.

The thing I didn’t like was the amount of stuff in KDE. Gnome was a bit like that at the time so I used Windowmaker then Blackbox. I went back to Gnome when it got simpler – If I want power I use the command line 🙂
