Well, I don't use KDE because I don't particularly like heavyweight 
software unless I need it, although it has been several years since I 
looked at either that or Gnome, and I have seriously considered several 
times recently installing both of them to see what they've been up to. 
As for X, it should be quite painless with the possible exception of 
getting the config (XF86Config) right - the first time I did it, it 
caused me much swearing and gnashing of teeth, but here recently it's 
gotten so painless  that I don't really remember it very well. That 
could be because it's gotten much easier, or because I've gotten used to 
it, the truth probly landing somewhere in the middle.
