Same here - I use mostly KDE when I use Linux. Having tried Gnome I
find that it is not as configurable as I would like.
Also some of the ways of doing things in Gnome is very counter-intuitive
eg changing which program you want to open a type of file. Its in the
right click menu for a file in Gnome and its in the Control Centre in KDE.
I had to ask on a forum before I found the way of doing it in Gnome.
I'll probably install Dapper Ubuntu and just see what the new version of
Gnomes like but will probably re-install Dapper Kubuntu...
