smb is a protocol, like ftp:// or http://, therefore has a double forward slash after the colon, for the record

You're right. KDE is a little inconsistent in this. The kioslaves, like smb:/ and media:/, use a single slash, whereas other protocols use a double slash, like fish://. As I'd been working with a directory over fish://, I automatically typed two slashes Sad

To confuse this subject more, gnome uses triple slashes for computer:///

lol

sorry pedant alert
double oblique in konqueror smb:// tells me that it is a malformed url, single oblique smb:/ works Wink

Nautilus accepts ' smb:/// ' , if i put smb:/ or smb:// it transforms it to smb:///


anyway this is all beside the point ... I like gnome and KDE, but I personally preffer Gnome for its stability.

interesting how many people here are stating a preference for gnome, and yet the poll doesnt reflect this?

note: i wanted to vote for gnome but cant seem to do it, maybe thats the reason?

I don't have a favourite as such, I liked KDE when I used SuSE 9.1 & 9.2, but I have quite old PCs and they tended to struggle under the load. I now use BeatrIX, which uses Gnome, and I am quite happy with that.

KDE seemed to be more flexible/customisable, and definately oozed with eyecandy, however, Gnome is lighter to run. At the end of the day, they both do the same job, and I think it's case of horses for courses.

Please dont get me wrong but I do love Kde too, particularly Amarok


Amarok runs just fine under Gnome. Yes, you have the overhead of kdelibs but Rhythmbox is pretty piss poor IMHO, it is one example of an oversimplified interface killing the usefulness of an application. The other KDE app I can't live without is K3B, again this runs fine under Gnome.

I rather like Rhythmbox, it's just it's stability and sluggishness of loading the library that irritates me and stops me from using it. Evil or Very Mad

Not to mention poor last.fm/audioscrobbler integration, the main reason I don't run it on my Gnome desktop.

I run BMP (Beep Music Player) under Gnome, it is basically XMMS re-written in GTK. I also ditch Totem for MPlayer and shove in the windows codecs. Speaking of which the MPlayer project is in need of donations so I think that is where my donation next month is going to.

Ditto, I run BMP (which is XMMS recoded for GTK+ 2 -- the original was GTK+ 1). Haven't tried to compile any XMMS plugins against it yet, though...
