I think it is personal preference.
A friend of mine prefers GDM, he uses CLE much more than I do and has
What I like about KDE is its konfigurable (I know the K is for Kool, but
this using K thing is katching - and annoying)
I tend to use a mixture of gnome tools still though, I like Nautilus,
Update Manager, Synaptic Manager for example.
I also like the blue look, and it works better for me with the two
monitors I have, better in that when I maximise a window in Kubuntu it
maximises to the current screen, not across both, and I have a toolbar
at the bottom of the screen that only has apps on that screen on it. I
haven't worked out how to do that with Gnome.
