I looked at the gnome desktop some time ago, and had an excursion into 
Ubuntu in a virtual about 2 years ago and *hated* it.

I use kde on all my machines (except the VOIP box!).

I tried xfce on my laptop for a couple of days, but moving between xfce 
and kde was bothersome, plus I couldn't find stuff so I went back to kde.
