I've got both KDE and Gnome working fine on my Gentoo system at home (I use FreeBSD for server use more than desktop), and they play together just fine. As yet another oddball opinion on the subject, I find KDE to be graphically prettier, but Gnome has a better "flow" to it. It's a bit more subdued (KDE seems to be very "in your face"). Also, the rendered of KDE just seems to mess stuff up more often. Desktop icon labels are cut off in the middle of a word for example, or toolbar icon labels have an "off center" appearance to them. I used KDE almost exclusively since Mandrake 5.1, but I've switched to Gnome as my primary interface as of Gnome 2.10.
