"Exhibiting steady improvement over previous versions, The GNOME Project's GNOME 1.4 and KDE Project's KDE 2.1.1 each go a long way toward making Linux a viable replacement for Windows on mainstream corporate desktops. But neither desktop interface has yet reached parity with the established players-pervasive support for features such as cut and paste across the interface can still be unpredictable."
"eWEEK Labs found that KDE (K Desktop Environment) comes much closer to delivering the sort of smooth interface that users have come to expect from the Macintosh and Windows operating systems than does GNOME (GNU Network Object Model Environment). In tests, KDE delivered snappier and more polished performance than did GNOME on the same hardware."
