Rony Klein talks about why he prefers GNOME over KDE. Although I find is "reasons" not very convinsing I like GNOME better than KDE aswell. I don't know what it is actually, I like the fact that the GNOME folks actually thought of stuff like usability, like the fact that they have a HIG (Human Interface Guideline). Personally I think that GNOME looks cleaner, although the new KDE 3.2 plastik theme is quite clean aswell. Ximian Desktop 2 is a very clean and easy to use system that uses GNOME as its base.
