Well, from my point of view, I run the apps that I like. I much prefer 
the KDE desktop but I have a few Gnome apps. Of course they load in some 
Gnome stuff besides just the app but................. Personally, I'm 
not such a purist that I shun something just because it isn't KDE.

Hasn't seemed to hurt anything on my machine. YMMV

Treat all stressful situations like a dog does.
If you can't eat it or play with it, 
just pee on it and walk away
