Not really.  I use a lot of gnome-applications, because they often have
a nicer outfit and more functionality than comparable KDE-applications
(which is of course not true for all).  But the KDE as desktop-environment
is much more stable and handier to use than Gnome itself (regardless
if used with Enltmt or Windowmaker).  Therefore I try to use the best of
both worlds.  However, i have the opinion, that instead of wasting their
energy in flame-wars against each other and developing the same applications
two times more or less efficiently, it would be A LOT better if both worlds
Gnome and KDE would find a way to combine their development efforts.
  A start could be for example to make kwm gnome-aware (as one recently
recommended on a kde-list).  A combined effort would be a big push forward
for the entire Linux-community.
