On this score there's a difference between the Gnome and KDE UI's. At
least until KDE 4.0 (which I have no real experience with), KDE used to
be very customizable and easy to make to work for you. Gnome, on the
other hand, has always offered less user control (my opinion). Most
users seem to prefer one desktop environment over the other. I use both:
Ubuntu/Gnome at work, openSUSE/KDE at home.
