I would have given up on Linux if someone hadn't reminded me that my first love, SLAX was KDE and so maybe I could try out variants with it. Since then I haven't been able to bear Gnome since.

I'm however happy Gnome exists because when I show people Linux distros I can give them the "Look at how much variety Linux has" argument and they are usually impressed with the common two, Gnome and KDE. I can't even take the Gnome is less resource intensive argument because on a netbook I had KDE down to just 200MB of RAM usage. On my sig rig Gnome in ubuntu 10.04 used only 50-100MB less RAM than Kubuntu 10.04

openSUSE11.3 I liked but because I did the full DVD install seemed a bit slow and bloated. So if you're judging KDE off of that experience give it a try in another distro as well.

OT: Anyone 1337 enough to go terminal only?
In general I found the opposite, a lot of people dissing Gnome and preaching KDE (you almost did yourself )... I however love Gnome, and have never liked KDE (I don't see where you could derive hate from my posts but never mind)... I am now giving it a go, and so far the best experiences I have had with KDE has been in Slackware 13.1 and now openSUSE 11.3 (DVD edition, let's not get into the whole bloat argument)...

So yes, so far so good... the more I use it and start to understand it the better it goes (and I suspect that was the only reason I preffered Gnome over anything else was because I knew it better)... at the end of the day, it is just an OS, and these are just desktop environments... nothing to get to upset about

My server doesn't even have a desktop environment installed. There is no point since I access it over SSH and use it to mount network drives.

You can't really go full terminal these days. It's hard to be really productive with it if you ask me.

On the other hand my server is full-CLI though. I access it with SSH just like binormalkilla

I do hope you are not thinking that I am a KDE Hater, I just don't care for it.
That is why Linux is so wonderful, we all have a choice of what we are comfortable with.

I started on Gnome. Tried KDE for a while, but still preferred Gnome after I made it visually appealing (I just don't like the KDE menu mostly. I prefer the MintMenu)

Now I'm torn between LXDE and XFCE.

Preferences change, especially as you start branching out and trying new environments.

Yea I originally had KDE installed on it, but I figured why keep it....I never used it. I have it hooked up to a spare HDMI port on my TV for when I flashed one of the PERC 5 RAID cards, but other than that.....only SSH.

It's really hard for me to be productive without the command line. Of course, not having a GUI at all would make it pretty difficult to view images or videos...

True. Although possible to view images it's generally a pain to for example, browse most websites.
Can't live without the command line, but can't stick to it for absolutely everything nowadays.

You can if its purely for a certain task that doesn't really require a GUI, I have a DOS gaming rig and when my main rig was down due to a faulty PSU I wrote something for school and printed it off on that, if I didn't watch movies and browse the internet I'd probably be fine without a GUI.

Yeah that's kind of what I mean. Sure you can do all filesystem-related and programming-related tasks from the CLI without no big deal, but it's hard to browse the Internet using the CLI unless your name is Richard Matthew Stallman (which uses wget to get his webpages).
