"How will GNOME 3 compare to KDE 4? The picture is still emerging, since GNOME 3's official release is still months away. However, with GNOME Shell available as a preview in the latest GNOME releases, a general outline is starting to be visible.

"Of course, some elements cannot be compared yet. It would be unfair, for instance, to compare panels in any detail, because in the previews GNOME Shell's panel has neither applets nor configurations. Nor, for that matter, can much be said yet about the upcoming KDE 4.6, which should be the latest version when GNOME 3.0 is released.

"Yet such limitations still leave general performance and design issues to talk about. And they are worth starting to think about -- and not just for the purposes of reigniting the old KDE vs. GNOME flame wars about which desktop is better. Clearly, the choices available for Linux users are about to change drastically."
