View Full Version : KDE vs Gnome

23rd May 2008, 03:42 PM
I am new to Fedora and was investigating the differences between the desktops of KDE and Gnome.

1. What are the basic differences?

2, Is there a preference in the community?

3. How do you switch between the two to experiment with both? Is it a major challenge in doing so?

NOOOO! Not another one! <..:p..>

Personal choice, my friend. By habit, fedora is a slightly Gnome-centric distro, but there are some serious issues cropping up with KDE4 this time around.

However, deciding is easier than you might guess. Install both of them, use each for a while, and your own preferences will guide you.

(Sorry about the strong reaction here, but this is a subject which has been done to death and then some. Use the search engine and have a look through that which has come before.)


EDIT: After both are installed, you may select which you wish to use at the user login screen, under the "Sessions" menu.
