Without tip-toeing around the matter, Linus Torvalds made his preference in the GNOME vs. KDE matter quite clear on the GNOME-usability list:

"I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE. This 'users are !diots, and are confused by functionality' mentality of Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are !diots, only !diots will use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do. Please, just tell people to use KDE." Also, "Gnome seems to be developed by interface naz!s, where consistently the excuse for not doing something is not 'it's too complicated to do', but 'it would confuse users'.
