I have both Kde 3.5.2 and Gnome 2.12 installed. I don't actually use gnome, but I need several parts of it as dependencies for other packages that I do run, and having enough drive space to do so, I just keep the whole thing up to date. Both run without any problems. FWIW, I have the opposite opinion from Paul on which is prettier. I think Kde is much more attractive than the rather spartan Gnome environment.
