I'm with Duncan so far, except I use Fedora rather than Gentoo.
I used to use Gentoo, I even worked on the Gentoo documentation, but nowadays 
I don't have the time to install and maintain something like Gentoo.

So basically, while I've tried to like how Gnome works I simply can't. To me 
it's not logical or customizable enough. KDE is so much easier to get to do 
exactly what I want it to do. I'm even perverted enough to kind of like kdepim 
and Kontact (probably because I'm perverted enough to like Outlook).

I tried stop using kdepim going for Thunderbird and extensions, but then I 
discovered that Thunderbird ate a couple of mails, and KMail has never done 
that so I went back to the, admittedly, sometimes rater clunky piece of 
software that is Kontact.
