I was a KDE user for approximately the first 12 months of my Linux
adventures, however KDE circa 2002 seemed a good deal lighter and
faster than KDE now.  Current KDE is now too cluttered and bloated
for my taste, whereas Gnome has improved a great deal, going in what
appears to be the opposite direction.

The default Gnome desktop shipped with Ubuntu 5.10 (Breezy Badger)
is particularly attractive and effective.
