Damn you beat me to it - however this review niggled me because there
where many small errors (of course I can't remember what they are right
now ;-)  but overall I think they were fair and got it about right,
although I still prefer GNOME (of course). 

Still 10 months ago (when I started lurking in this list) you would be
lucky to find a reference to linux in mainstream press let alone GNOME or
KDE, let alone a review of either, let alone either being distributed on
the cover disc.

Can't wait for what the next 10 months will bring ;-) (A working version
of that killer mail app I hope ;-)
