• I don't know if you're looking for the technical answer or just a general one, so I'll stick with general. KDE and Gnome are just different desktop packages that form the desktop interface (and built-in software that comes with it) in Linux. Most flavours of Linux come with one or the other, but some come with both. Some folks think if you use Gnome, you can't use any software that normally comes with KDE and vice versa. That's not true. You just need to have the proper libraries installed. In my opinion, having these choices is what makes Linux so powerful. Windows doesn't offer two completely unique desktop choices with software to match. Gnome has been generalized as the newbie desktop and KDE as the pro one. I don't buy that at all. It's a matter of personal preference.
  • KDE is build over QT library, but GNOME is over gtk+.
