Hi, Ambrogio.  You really don't have to switch to gnome to use evolution or 
gimp, or any other application (nor would you have to switch to kde if you 
were running in gnome and wanted to run a kde application).  Installing the 
application you want will pull in any necessary libraries, and the application 
will run on either desktop.  I do use some gnome applications on my kde 
desktop.

Agreed - I also prefer to check whether others experience a problem, since if 
I'm the only one experiencing it, it's likely to be my configuration that's at 
fault.

A few, but not many now.  The problem is that some of the things are done 
differently, so if there are particular things that you miss, do ask.  We may 
be able to tell you how to do it, and if not, we may be able to tell you 
whether it is work-in-progress.
