Carlos has a point, although I'm not sure I'd have worded it quite so
strong -- I know there are plenty of happy KDE users, as there are
Windows users. Having said that, I loaded the Xubuntu LiveCD for the
first time yesterday [I was curious] and have to admit that I
personally wasn't impressed. I didn't find it as user friendly as
GNOME and it did seem to feature lots of foreign [to me at least]
applications. I think the GNOME desktop has a better naming convention
and is better suited as the default desktop...

...I could probably ramble on for ages on this topic, but I'll leave it there.
