Personally I have always preferred KDE. The full KDE package also includes
KOffice and a large range of apps.

One good thing I like is KDE will run the gnome apps but gnome won't run KDE
So you don't loose out on any choices with KDE.

It is in ports at /usr/ports/x11/kde3, but you may want to get hold of the
pre-built package and install from that.
