Gnome vs GTK vs KDE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 20, 2010
After using 9.04 for some time I wanted to reinstall to clear out all the garbage I have collected while testing.
I am using the gnome desktop and now when it comes to reinstall some apps I get the choice of "GTK" or 'KDE"
Is there any difference as to what works better with Gnome.
GTK vs. KDE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 6, 2011
So I'm fairly new to Linux, and I just replaced my Mac OS X with Ubuntu 10.10. I know some pretty basic things about Linux, and some things are cloudy.
Basically I download a distro of Linux that gave me an option between KDE and GTK before, I'm not sure which distro.
After I fully installed Ubuntu last night, I started looking for must own add-ons like Wine, and the new desktop ui eyecandy. I eventually came to a YouTube video where the "guru" apparently was using Spore with Crossover. What attraced my attention most was his UI. He was able to change the window borders, icons, and it looked like he was using GTK. But to be honest, I'm not entirely sure what's the difference between GTK and KDE really is. Now I'm automically assuming Ubuntu is using GNOME and that it turn is GTK? On a different distro though I remember clicking on some kind of application that changed the UI a slightly and GTK symbols were in place of the regular icons. Is this the case with Ubuntu?

I think Unity is horrible, Gnome 2 ok, Gnome 3, a little bit better than ok, and Kde is BEAST!!!
Ubuntu:: GNOME vs KDE
location: linuxquestions.com - date: February 13, 2008
If on the same computer, would Ubuntu 7.10 (GNOME) install and configure better than Kubuntu 7.10? This question was raised recently by my brother by claiming the GNOME desktop was better than KDE. I assumed because both are from the same base OS, both would install the same with the only difference being the chosen desktop environment (GENOME vs KDE). Both would configure correctly for the same computer, network connection, video driver, printer, etc. Does anyone have knowledge about this question?
Thanks in advance, jwillar
Unity vs Gnome3 vs KDE 4.7.1
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: October 26, 2011
I just finished testing and comparing vanilla Ubuntu (with Unity) and Ubuntu with Gnome3 (sudo apt-get install gnome-shell) and vanilla Kubuntu on the same machine and I am interested to know what others think of them.
Despite the controversy, I quite like Unity and where it seems (I hope) to be heading. However, I haven't tested Gnome3 since it was in alpha and early beta and I am very impressed with its current level of polish. I also haven't tested KDE since early on in 4.x and I am very impressed with it as well.
I am not impressed enough with KDE 4.7.1 to make the change to Kubuntu, but I'm surprised how much I enjoyed it this time around (although I still think it feels a little heavy).
Gnome3 is very nice. I think that it has a lot of potential and in many ways it is more advanced than Unity from the UI point of view. However, at the moment Unity looks like it will be the more efficient of the two, but it still feels like it is in "early beta" stage, whereas Gno

[SOLVED] Different startup programs for gnome vs. kde?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 16, 2008
I'm currently running gnome and I want to switch to KDE, but I don't want to ruin my gnome settings and everything. I just installed KDE, and now I have all kinds of different things in my sessions box that weren't there before. Is there any way to make the startups for gnome and KDE different from each other?
XFCE vs Gnome vs KDE
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: December 17, 2005
Ok, i know about KDE and Gnome, some of there pros and cons from personal experience. But i know nothing about XFCE, is it just as functional as KDE and Gnome? Is it lacking alot of features? Is it worth using on the Desktop?
Linux on MacBook vs. KDE on OS X
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 15, 2008
I recently purchased a MacBook. I loved the idea of a decent development platform without much administration work. I also loved the idea of a hardware optimized kernel and a nice secure, fast BSD kernel. Plus, Macs are known for reliable hardware. I figured that I would get used to the Mac OS X interface, but after using for a couple of months, it still feels like I'm poking needles in my eyes every time I use that piece of garbage.
Needless to say, I feel like a tool since I spent $1100 on a laptop that I hate, so I would like to do something about that. I have an Ubuntu Server Desktop running KDE (apt-get kicks ass). So my fist thought was to just run KDE on top of Mac OS X. That way, I could still keep the advantage of having a kernel specifically compiled for my hardware (No, I refuse to use Gentoo), but get an interface that I liked. Does anyone know if I will still be able to run iTunes, Time Machine, etc under KDE?
My next thought was to dual boot my
