To me, GNOME is just a compromise to those who cannot have KDE. I am on GNOME
at the moment (SSH'ing to SuSE from Ubuntu) and I must say that, although
GNOME is clean and solid, it misses many of must-have features. For example:

-No slideshow for desktop wallpapers

-Not much freedom when it comes to colours (I like dark shades)

-Docks have less functionality (questionable)

-File management is rather poor

-Evolution is said to be buggy. I steered away from it ever since day 1. Many
of the applications from KDE are sorely missed...

Best of luck,
