I liked gnome3 over kde4 because it's quicker. I am surprised about 
nautilus, because it works fine here, much better than dolphin (maybe 
it's a matter of habit ?).
I liked thunderbird because with hotmail and gmail it configures 
I prefer kde4 themes and specially qtcurve aqua but as it works fine 
with gtk2 I am very happy (not yet working with gtk-3. I find gnome3 
themes to dark that's horrible. But as I don't know how to do it I keep 
to it. I use fakeosx but now in gnome3 it's not too nice. kde4 has 
wonderfull themes.
