Ease of Use: KDE and GNOME
K Desktop Environment (2.2):
- Konqueror file-manager/web-browser;
- Koffice, Kmail, korganizer (calendar);
- Much reduced memory footprint (compared to KDE 1.x)
GNOME; Red Hat Default:
- Galeon browser, Nautilus file manager;
- Gnome Office, Balsa mail tool, gnomecal, gnumeric;
- The GIMP!
|These are Desktop
Environments. Window manager is separate,
- sawfish (GNOME default, replaces enlightenment)
- kwm (KDE default)
- WindowMaker (My favourite!)
- FVWM2 (old reliable)
- KDE, GNOME tools inter-operate (developers on good terms).
- Both are rivals to windows for ease of use, point/click. Different!
