Hibernation isn't really handled by the desktop environment. I believe both Gnome and KDE throw the task to swsusp, uswsusp, or suspend2.

In my early Linux days, I loved Enlightenment and Black/Flux-box. I couldn't see the appeal of either of the "big 2". Then around about the release of KDE 3.2 I tried KDE again, and I fell in... like. Not love yet, but the potential was there. K3b, Akregator, Digikam... wonderful apps that made me want a KDE environment. With my recent switch to Ubuntu, I too switched to Gnome. But it didn't give me the impression that KDE was bloated, it gave me the impression that I was now computing with handcuffs on. I couldn't do the things I wanted to do to customize my apps. My affair with Gnome only lasted a week and a half, and I swear it didn't mean a thing! Thankfully KDE took me back. 🙂

Well, I tend to just use aptitude, but it was just an example app to show the difference.

Firefox/Thunderbird use their own toolkit with a little smoke and mirrors to look like GTK apps, that's why they don't really fit into Gnome either and prove to make integration into KDE even more difficult than Gnome apps.

@Seth- This is my typical writing style. I usually bring out the peanut gallery with my posts. 🙂

@al- Thanks for your ever-so-insightful comment. It really adds to the discussion here.

@Terence- Since using aptitude, I haven't pulled up Synaptic in a *long* time.

@yay- Yes, it definitely runs faster, and I could make KDE look *exacly* like a Gilouche environment with little effort. By the way, how is Gilouche *any* different from ClearLooks?

@Lure- Just run Firefox/Thunderbird in KDE, and you'll see what I'm talking about.

@David- Yeah, I think I'll just stick with mostly KDE apps though. IceApe doesn't look half-bad, however. Pleasantly surprised.

@Hoàng Đức Hiếu- Who else should I be blaming. When my desktop environment cannot meet certain expectations, what am I to do? I'm am running Debian Sid.

@fred- Thank you sweetheart. It's good to be back. 🙂

Because blaming un-hibernateable on the desktop env makes no sense to me.

Its not perfect but its close.

as for yay: yes you can have a gilouche equivalent. use qtcurve and a gilouche colour scheme. hope your enjoying WinXP 😛

Sure gtk looks different in KDE, but I cannot say it looks ugly - or I just got used to it. 😉

On the "GTK apps look ugly" subject, yeah, that's true. QtCurve can ease that though. For example Synaptic with QtCurve style looks much nicer, or at least more integrated.

Or maybe not; sometimes I get the impression there's not nearly as many Gnome die-hards out there as the KDE... Anyway, I personally don't like either. That having been said these screenies of KDE 4 are awful pretty.

I too started with KDE back in the SuSE days and loved it. Somewhere along the way I switched to GNOME for a few months. I finally realized how bad it was and now I'm back with KDE running almost all KDE software, except for Songbird and Firefox.
