"If you downloaded and installed Fedora 13, most likely you are using the GNOME desktop. If you've been reading me here on Ghacks long enough then you know I am fairly partial to the GNOME desktop. That doesn't mean I feel KDE should get the cold shoulder. In fact, the latest iterations of KDE have made AMAZING strides in reaching (and nearly surpassing) GNOME in stability and speed. Because of this I have started a new "push" to cover the KDE desktop.

"But in order for you to use KDE you will in, in many cases, have to install it post-distribution install. Of course, if you're not interested in installing KDE after you have installed the OS, you can always download the Fedora KDE spin. This will install, by default, the KDE desktop. If, however, you want the best of both worlds, you will need to install the KDE desktop manually…that's where this article comes in play. In this article I will show you how to install the KDE desktop on Fedora 13 using both the command line and the Add/Remove Software tool."
