KDE. I don't like Gnome, it always feels counter-intuitive, and I really like
the application I use most, Kontact, along with its component parts.

The Gnome equivalent, Evolution, appears to me to be clunky and missing
features, as well as not being able to import my old addressbooks, at least
at the time I looked at it, several versions ago.

I have KDE on three machines at home and one at work.

Lots of people got "used" to - and like - KDE as it was the default when we
installed older versions. I suspect it will take a long time for the
"Gnomists" to catch up in terms of numbers.
