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.
