Thanks to all for very usefull answers. Some comments and Q's:

The default fonts for kde are better than the default fonts for gnome, at
least for my eyes, so for that and some other reasons I think I switch.

But some problems to: I have installed java, under gnome I could run a
application by clicking the icon, with kde it opens in a browser!, which is
less than usefull.

and worst, I lost the menuline at the bottom of the screen, and cannot get
it back!!!  what to do?
When I restart the computer, the kde menuline appears for a few seconds,
then disappear,
and I cannot get it back. That makes kde less than usefull!

"Perhaps there is no such thing as unilateral power. After all, the man 'in
power' depends on receiving information all the time from outside. He
responds to that information just as much as he 'causes' things to
happen...it is an interaction, and not a lineal situation. But the myth of
power is, of course, a very powerful myth, and probably most people in this
world more or less believe in it. It is a myth, which, if everybody believes
in it, becomes to that extent self-validating. But it is still
epistemological lunacy and leads inevitably to various sorts of disaster."
