Assalamualaikum,

It is very hard to say anything about KDE vs GNOME. So I won't go in details about it ... I personally like GNOME.

You can install both desktop environments on Mandrake at same time & you can switch b/w both of them without losing any data. It won't take that much time ... Beside that you can use KDE's programs on GNOME & GNOME programs on KDE ...

Regards,

-Meraj

Asalam o Alaikum!

I have found KDE to be better when it comes to KDE vs Gnome.

However in case of Windows vs Linux, I think that one can get the best solution by combining the two worlds.

Asalam o Alaikum!
