InfoWorld: Linux users enjoy customizable interfaces

(Other stories by Kevin Railsback)

"Flexibility, logic of Gnome and KDE interfaces allow Linux users to address their own needs, rather than the developers', while at the same time boosting personal productivity and satisfaction"

"This isn't a story of which development environment is better or which we prefer to use in the InfoWorld Test Center. Instead, we take a deeper look at why developers and end-users choose one or the other of these interfaces. Of course, there are a number of alternatives, such as CDE (Common Desktop Environment) and others, that developers have been using for some time."

"Choosing between Gnome and KDE should really be up to each user. When I set up a Linux workstation, I always install both platforms. I'm primarily a Gnome user, but others prefer KDE. The beauty of both environments is that they can, for the most part, coexist and be interchanged freely. Of course, software that is designed solely for one environment won't look as slick and polished on the other."
