Is there a difference?
Should I upgrade them to the newest versions?
I am a total Linux n00b.
this is total preference, i personally like enlightenment/litestep (offshoot of gnome) because it is totally customizable and still fun to look at.....suggestion, since your new, try several window environments, youll find some are pretty without much to offer, others heavy on usability but clunky, etc. gotta figure this one out on your own
I just didn't know if there were huge differences between the two.
not particularly, they differ in the bundled apps, long story short, they are kinda the same, both built on the X11 code, but went their own ways....
kde on bsd, baby
KDE, and I have no idea why I choose that. I just always go back to it.
I think maybe the gears logo is better than the foot.
I was thinking the same thing.
Is it worth it to upgrade to the new version?
Providing I can figure out how to do it.
KDE has always felt more 'accessible' to me.....for lack of a better term
I prefer enlightenment, but of the two in the poll, Gnome
ive only used KDE lol im a noob too but it is getting on my nerves
it just seems kind of cheesy with the Ks on everything and the menu editor for the K Menu thing just DOESNT WORK AT ALL it deletes all my shortcuts I have on there when I try to add a new one, and then when I try to put the one I added back in it duplicates it and adds back in a random few from the ones it deleted earlier
totally unusable, it seems like they just threw that piece of the interface(K Menu) in to make it a little more like Windows
thats a lot of my beef with KDE I think I think it tries a little too hard to be like windows GUI and its just not
it works fine, I like it, i just think it doesnt flow quite as well as my graphical linux experience could
Gnome, always have always will. I find KDE too clunky I guess. It's entirely personal preference really, best to try both and choose which one you like better. Not that they're your only choices, there are tons of other window managers.
I used to use XFCE back when I was on a Pentium Pro 133MHz with 16MB of RAM. It's very lightweight, great for slower machines.
That's exactly how I feel about KDE.. but for some reason, most people like it over gnome.
Fluxbox is great if you're into that whole spartan desktop look...
it's incredibly fast too.
I also like xfce4.. I use that one at work (slower machine)
