    The gnome layout is blue, but you can customise it much better then windows. Ubuntus colour (red-brown? earth-brown?) fits the meaning of ubuntus name very well, don't you think so

    In any case YOU can customise your desktop like you want: KDE "sexy desktop howto"

    ...... my mistake ..... the comp with 500Mhz has 128 MB RAM .... Just checked.
    And it's running smoothly, same as every other computer I have. No significant lag observed.

    So what are the differences between Kde and Gnome?

    @Eni: Thanks for the links.

    They are different desktop environments. I myself prefer GNOME, because KDE looks ugly and i especially hate its start menu

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    It just depends on taste. KDE looks like windows, maybe thats why it's prefered by beginners.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Desktop_environment
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Window_manager

    Gnome and KDE are desktop enviroments, full of things you could need. File manager, calender, sound server, image viewer, a set of basic programs, own desktop games, icons, themes, login manager, ......

    But most of this things are useless for me and I prefer to use KDE file manager and Gnome Texteditor, also KDE's japanese learnings programs but Gnomes image viewer. I use the Enlightment sound server and login manager and I have no need for a office suite, 'cause I use Lyx/Latex.

    That's why I choosed a light window manager like fluxbox or xfce. It comes with nothing, no programs, no usefull stuff ... but I can install whatever I want, take the best parts of other wm's and built my own desktop enviroment from the scratch, so to say it

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    I have been using Ubuntu for almost a week, and I love it. I installed Mandrake 10.1 a while ago, but it didn't recognize my winmodem (I now have cable), so I sorta gave up. I will probably wipe my whole drive soon to give it more than than the 15 or so gigs it has now (my drive is around 60) since (other than Microsoft Reader) windows has nothing I need. What is best is the stability (my XP Home is dying on me with long startups/shutdowns/Explorer crashing), and the complete safety from viruses/malware. Plus everything just works and is free. . I prefer Gnome because of the simplicity and not having a 20 or so programs beginning with 'K'.

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    I use Windows mainly because it´s compatible with just about any application out there, But I´d like to try Mac sometime, Leopard looks shiny.

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    I use windows at the moment (mostley cuse i got it for free)

    I simply say like this

    Mac = the best hardware

    Windows = the best Operating System to play games on

    Linux/Unix/Readhatt = very good Operating System for those who like to change and mod in the Operating System

    (if you don't agree i don't care)

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    Is this thread still open?

    Windows for me (cuz I have no choice. compatibility, anyone)

    Mac = getting one soon. aside from evolving to unix scripting, really one piece of a great machine, sw and hw wise.

    Linux = "j00r b0x $ wyd 0p3n" Script Kiddies & Packet Monkeys, Rejoice! What I'm saying is... Get this If you want the hard and secure way around. That's all there is to it. (Debian, Ubunto and Fedora user)

    Choice: Windows (I said, no choice!)

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    Windows, because like it was said, it's most compatible with everything on programmes stuff, but Linus is better and better on that aspect every year ^^

    I vote for Windows, but I also prefer Linux for beieng more "open" xD

    Mac - i didn't use it, so i don't know how it is to have such system ^^

    Re: Mac? Windows? Linux?

    For me, using Windows (XP) is easier since there are more compatible software. Or maybe because i'm just too lazy to try anything else. I tried Linux once, but (imo) you really need a lot of tweaking to get it to work the way you want it to.

    yeah, linux for the secure way around...last time i used winxp, 2 attempted attacks per minute! plus, it's more flexible, provided you have the will, the hardware and the internet connection ; and less resource hungry; e.g. i use a laptop, 1.6 G Celeron, i915 video, 512MB RAM. with XP, running with internet security makes my system run at a crawl. i get faster responses with linux. and i run it on an external usb hard drive sometimes with usb tv tuner AND 3d desktop eye-candy. all this on a system that can barely run vista.

    i really like eye-candy so i have a different philosophy for those who want lightweightedness. have you heard the new eye-candy buzzword in the linux world, about 3d desktop? you can see a lot of their demos on youtube. i highly recommend taking a look at them. although mac led the way, linux took it a step further and windows...maybe after vista!

    my desktop....
