Nobody is going to switch from KDE to Gnome because Gnome is gonna get rot by .Net M$ shitload

actually you are not as informed as you want to demonstrate. this .NET idea is junk comming out from that fucking fag and toilet cleaner miguel de icaza because of saying this on all places he made a lot (and i say a lot) of people angry. a lot of gnome developers are so damn pissed about him that they really like seeing his FACE dead in the grounds. well he is just some noisemaker nothing else. he actually contributed a lot of lines for gnome 1 and for gnome 2 he didnt write one single line. he only goes from interview to interview and poses around.

you shouldnt give a fuck about what that guy says not to mention that SUN puts a lot of money into the arse of gnome i doubt they want to kill their own java with C# think one second about this.

It makes ne sense to compare gnome & kde by their look, since both are themifiable.

One can just rip all icons from this theme and make Kde look like gnome, it is easy.

You can't just rip these icons unless KDE has SVG (Scalable Vector Graphics) support...

(Don't really know if it has...)

there is a non-scalable theme for gnome intended for slow computers. Nothings prevent you to rip it for non-scalable KDE icons... as long as you deserve credits to jimmac :)

yeah but then its a rippoff again. well the gnome 2 core has changed drastically. a lot of changes a lot of unifying the system etc.

only sideeffect is that you dont get MUCH news with gnome 2 the first time you start it up you think its still gnome 1.

Very nice wp & icons. other than that it's just plain buggy bloated ugly as hell gnome.
Us real people use a functional feature rich desktop (rara?) and don't have a desktop/server just to showoff or stare at the whole day.

... appearance, particularly with default or default-related settings, yields the impression that everything is made of wet, squishy, sticky clay. It is certainly not what I want to think about every time I look at my desktop.

Size and photorealism have nothing to do with it -- it's the colour. There's waaaaaay too much emphasis on army-green shades and everything looks too dark. The thick black lines around everything don't help, either.

I sincerely hope that KDE retains its bright, crisp and clean look-and-feel.

errm. thats only ONE theme and this one beats everything i have seen on KDE so far. please allow me to point you to some more or less (''worse'') early gnome 2 screenshots

I think KDE looks very good, and anyway, you can make the exact same theme for KDE and Gnome. But there's another thing. Can you beat KDE/Qt with GTK/GTK++? NO WAY IN HELL!

... wasn't a GNOME versus KDE thing. It was a criticism of GNOME's appearance as shown in the preview screenshots. I agree that it's much more polished than what's pictured in the early GNOME 2 screenshots you pointed out. The thing is, despite being more polished, it still "feels" the same -- fine for people who like the base theme, but I'm not one of them.

I'll try to put it in words... GNOME looks professional. Industrial. Serious. Predictable. Mundane. KDE, on the other hand, looks inviting. Residential. Fun. Optimistic. Artistic.

I use this computer at home to unwind, to relax, and occasionally to do work. Is it any wonder I prefer the KDE style?

...the same verve that you are promoting gnome - and actually at the same time - someone has ditched my votes by now 16% and has posted a comment with more than 4000 lines of crap to my last wallpaper - so please excuse me while i don't applaud for this experimental screenshot. I don't care _who_ is voting bad again and again. But if it is you i've got some good advice: Try to read up on this one:

Maybe you'll get the point.

yeah the official statement. you may want to join irc.gimp.org #gnome and stay there for hmmmmm 3 years ? and then you get a real clue what gnome DEVELOPERS really think about it. not to mention all these nice comments on gnome-private mailinglist that no one is supposed to read.

and no sorry, i am not that person writing these loooooong lines. but looks like the shit people gonna post on /. every now and then.

If that's how gnome will look, I will use it without a doubt. I like the larger, more roundish icons, which would work nicley with a pen tablet.

I do like kde, but use gnome most of the time, and I can say that gnome already looks like this, I've just installed this nautilus theme and it looks very nice on my gnome 1.4 desktop with aa fonts

I guess this is like those phones with the huge buttons for people with eye problems and don't see to well. It looks much to Sesame Street for me.

you can scale 'em down..the best thing is that when scaled it keeps the quality (scalable vector graphics)

one of my all time favorites. He's correct. In all the years KDE has never had anything like it. Well now there's Korilla, but the icons don't descend down below the line so it's just not the same. The icons are classic too!
