Opinion: GNOME vs. KDE

Up

I've switched back to KDE until the next GNOME release due to stability issues with my (overcomplicated) setup.
Those of you who like to micromanage every detail in an application are likely to prefer GNOME to KDE. I do not argue you're wrong for taking that approach. Nevertheless, I argue GNOME is wrong for failing to provide the coarse granularity one finds with KDE. There's no reason why GNOME has to eliminate its granular approach to fill in the gaps I'm talking about.

Take one of the complaints I voiced about Evolution's tool bars last week as an example. I'm used to right-clicking on a tool bar (or at least select an option from a menu) to get to a dialog where I can customize the tool bar. I cannot do that with Evolution or just about any other GNOME application, but I can with most KDE applications.
