On second thought this should have its own thread sorry
> qualifier: most of my experience with kde4 is with Kubuntu 9.04-10 and
> gnome with Ubuntu 9.04-10.
> reason 1: While there are definite improvements in certain aspects of
> the aesthetics of KDE4 for the most I don't appreciate the aesthetics
> I think that the gnome compiz marriage is light-years ahead of plasma
> and kde4. Hell enlightenment (see the elive distro for a good show of
> this desktop) blows away kde 4 in this department.
> reason 2: Performance and stability...well mostly stability. This is
> a criticism that probably reflect upon Kubuntu as much as KDE4 but
> when i first loaded Kubuntu 9.04 my xserver crashed so much that I had
> to double check that I wasn't running Vista.
> reason 3: For me the jump from KDE3.5 to KDE4 was such a jarring
> experience that I felt I was learning a whole new operating system
> from the get go. I think that the KDE4 and Kubuntu team could learn
> something from M$ in one respect. when changing the total look and
> feel of your GUI (as with XP to Vista) don't change so much of it that
> your longtime users feel like noobs all over again.
> again just my opinion.
