My initial impression of gnome compared to KDE 1.1. Warning:
Extremely subjective materials follow. Turn your radios down...
KDE 1.1 is nice but it still has problems related to operation here.
The kfm tends to lock things and when I quickly switch between things
like the browser and open windows, I start seeing the slowdowns
occurring. In fact, I have had the window manager just stop operating
and left me with a desktop of stuff that would not do anything. KDE
1.1 improves and makes things a helluva lot more stable.
My impressions of gnome. Its cool; its fun; its quite stable here
running under windowmaker. It has some of the nicest bundled
applications you have seen. The file manager is quite cool. I did have
problems compiling the rpms and using them until I managed to actually
read the fine manuals and see that imlib had problems. I do not notice
the slowdowns and processor hangs with gnome as with kde.
I believe though that these are two different beasts. KDE runs as its
own windowing manager. Gnome runs separately on top of an existing
manager. I am using windowmaker optimized for gnome. Its fast, has a
lot of features like rollup windows (I love rollups), and it seems
quite stable here. It also has some nice config tools on its own.
Toss in the latest gnome and its a nice combination.
The best thing is you can try gnome with rpm files which are optimized
for suse 6. I think everyone should at least try the latest gnome and
compare it themselves with kde. I just like gnome better but I also
My few favorite gnomish apps:

Nice stuff!! There is also a very nice ftp client. GFTP. Check out
the software map under www.gnome.org.
