I like kde because of the "integration with other programms". Then I start a kde programm in a non kde envirenment (e.g. : Konqueror), then it takes really to much time. So I prefer using kde, and from there I start the gtk programs I want ... (Gaim, evolution...), and all open very fast.
I also think that the kde key bindings are good, It's quite hard to configure them under gnome.

 The need for speed!

I started with KDE, then went to Gnome 2.0 because at that time I found it was much cleaner and faster then KDE. Now I'm back to KDE, because I think Gnome has become much too slow in its 2.6 version, it feels just very memory hungry. KDE on the other hand, has made positive progress in the performance department.

Oh, and the Nautilus spatial mode did not bother me. You can even switch it off completely, so really, all these discussions pro or contra spatial are just useless trolling.

But to conclude, I'm a happy KDE user for now!

Here's another option for the list:

I don't use KDE!

And I don't, as a matter of fact. But I do browse KDE-Look on occasion to see if there's some especially juicy content on here.

I prefer to use KDE because of the networking capabilities through the fish (ssh) protocol. I am constantly using Kwrite to edit files on other servers. I even use the fish protocol for editing config files owned by root on the localhost.

Yes, there are other reasons I like KDE, but that is why I love and use it. ;-)

When I installed Linux for the first time (it was mandrake 9.1), I liked Gnome more than KDE, however there was a thing that annoyed me in Gnome - the lack for advanced configuration options. After some time I switched to KDE because EVERYTHING can be configured (even the hotkeys). Now I use Gentoo and KDE 3.2.3 (and I'm happy with it). I hope that KDE 3.3 won't lose its configurability.

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
