Very clean interface, are KDE packages compatible under the XFCE desktop enviroment?

Yes indeed they are.

Amarok etc work fine.  Although they use the kde theme you are currently using.  To get around this I use qtcurve theme.  And try to customize theme so that it resembles my gtk theme.  For example I am using clearlooks gtk theme, so I modifythe qtcurve theme to looks similar and ajust the kde colours accordingly so they match gtk.

The downside with xfce on Pardus is that openoffice is built without gtk support, this means that openoffice takes on your kde colour scheme etc.

Openoffice is the only application I use that pulls the kde theme.  I only temporarily use package-manager and network-applet.

On a side note a little fiddling is needed in order to enable package-manager etc to work under xfce.  But is is as simple as having a command run when you log into xfce.   You simply add it via thr xfce autostart gui.

I do not se xfce for speed, I use it for visual appearance.  Gtk seems much nicer looking than Qt.

True - Its got a far crisper interface - Presumably you won't have the KDE bloatware now? I hate that most about KDE - Who uses all those applications(?)

If I want to keep tasma and the other Pardus specific utilities e.g.g network-manager I would only need to keep kdelibs and kdeutils.  I can remove kdebase, but it requires building policykit-gnome and gdm.  Both are in playground repository, but they do not build at the moment Sad

^ Just to see what the general consensus is, I like GNOME, but Ubuntu's instability in dealing with it put me off (or maybe it was because Ubuntu's based on Debian?).

Gnome-2.24 seems very attractive on Pardus:

Hey! Lol, I love GNOME Tongue Just a tad unstable... but KDE 4 blows it out of the water I admit - the whole "Desktop" and "Home" folder on the desktop in a tasteful black transparent "box" is an incredible idea.
