I used KDE from the beginning and switched to Gnome in '02 and never
looked back.  I found KDE to big... and compiling KDE is a BITCH exactly
because of QT... QT stuff takes forever to build!  Maybe people on super
fast hardware don't care, but on my p3 compiling KDE might as well take
a week.

Honestly once I moved to Gnome I found the simplicity exactly what I
want in a Desktop.  I like to leave the complexity to the console.
