Flamewar! Suit up people! Clifford, look at what you have done.

I run KDE (KDE4) on Jaunty and I hear things are better on Karmic but 
you might find things less troublesome with GNOME.

You can install both and try them out. If you have a Windows mobile 
phone, Dolphin/Konqueror support the whatcha call it protocol for 
managing files on the phone. Not sure about GNOME file managers...
