Congrats on the job!

I have used KDE since v1. I have used Gnome here a little bit, and there are 
some things with Gnome that I like, however I am KDE hardcore. KDE is 
definitely quicker and more responsive, and a recent test has shown this as 
well. My Cons for Gnome makes one hell of a list, and my Cons for KDE are 
rather short. The default settings and applications in a KDE install are 
rather simplistic and quite lacking. At times I like the layout and look of 
Gnome, but KDE's simplicity is where it is at.
