* It looks nicer to me. I mean visually. I like eye candy.
* I am very used to KDE's GUI conventions, from button order and
keyboard shortcuts, to configuration dialog semantics, context menus and
the "start menu."
* Many of my favorite applications are written with Qt. As a result,
they look and behave better in KDE (though in recent years this isn't
much of a problem with Gtk-based desktops.)
* The Dolphin file manager. I like it very, very much.
* Extremely configurable keyboard shortcuts, like for suspending desktop
compositing. Last time I checked, I couldn't see how to do that in Gnome.
