for LAMP fedora is rock solid.As for KDE vs Gnome....it depends on the user....there are power users who prefer to do most of their stuff from commandline, desktop wont matter, and Gnome wud suite such people better as it hogs less resources.For a normal user who wants all the eye candy and stuff, KDE still rules. In fact I still use KDE even 4 yrs after switchin to Linux.Even though I use commandline for many of my tasks , I prefer KDE. So its really down to personal prefs. Also application support is better now in KDE than Gnome (I now we can run apps irrespective of the desktop ..but i am talkin abt native apps)

I used to prefer KDE but now I simply prefer GNOME. The apps are decent. KDE apps are certainly friendlier but those few apps which are better in KDE can always be launched in GNOME. No hassles. GNOMEs way faster, more memory efficient and cleaner look appeals to me.This is coming from a KDE guy who has been a staunch KDE supporter and GNOME critic for the past 5-6 years. So you guess what my word means :p Anyway, to each his own. Use both. Decide what works best for you. Use it :)

that email is abt 1 and half yr old. but yes KDE for me is still better.actually KDE had a head start but at that time it was not GPL and hence gnome came into existence but then soon KDE was released under GPL. but redhat had already chosen gnome as default.since long i am waiting for fedora team to make KDE as default UI environment. i dont think it wud be done though.
