There has been a dramatic shift in the Linux desktop usage in the past several years. Come the season of Gnome 3, a split happened in the community, breaking the decade old Gnome-KDE dominance. - See more at: http://www.hackerpaparazzi.com/?p=755#sthash.WdYQS7fp.dpuf

Good Read...Think KDE Users will Surely Disagree...But Cinnamon has come a long ways in such short Time :D

Good read. I have started using Cinnamon lately and was using KDE earlier. I like Cinnamon for its simplicity, eg: Change Desktop Background is as simple as it can be. Just changes the background instantly. No Unlock Widgets , No 'Apply' button, etc like KDE though KDE can do a lot more things.

Where KDE scores over Cinnamon would be
- Dolphin is far superior in terms of functionality (Nepomuk) compared to Nemo. Not just in terms of semantic search.
- Cinnamon Desk lets < KDE Widgets
- KWin
- Krunner Alt + F2 serves myriad of purposes compared to Cinnamon.

I feel [url=http://tech.slashdot.org/story/13/04/13/005250/klyde-lightweight-kde-desktop-in-the-making]KLyDE[/url] will address some of these concerns and make it not look mind-boggling for the user.

Here's a link that's working (at the moment, anyway): http://netrunner-mag.com/?p=2912

I mostly liked this part:
Both KDE and Cinnamon are viable, successful, handsome choices for your Linux desktop.You will not go wrong if you choose either this or that one, so it’s the matter of taste and preference really.
Note that the author also wrote:
Next week, we will discuss the other side of the coin – What Cinnamon can learn from KDE.
Also: As always, interesting comments following the article.

Cinnamon has advanced a lot in the little time you have in life. And I hope that much progress still more if he really becomes independent of Gnome. Without a doubt, it shows that it is a very promising desktop......... The article really is brilliant.

But KDE is still the King. So far, I humbly believe that no Linux desktop really makes KDE shade. Best regards.

KDE has more features than Cinnamon, but at what cost? I went through the System Settings in KDE. I didn't understand probably close to half of the options that were available. I certainly didn't have time to modify each one to see what it does. KDE is also more taxing on the computer. On my Netbook I have to disable Nepomuk or forget it. I configured every little setting in Cinnamon in 1/10 of the time.
