If you referring to GTK in the sense of look and feel, this is is odd. I
don't consider GTK to be Gnome the same way that I don't consider qt-based
applications to be KDE.
I reserve that classification to a closer integration with the desktop,
AFAIK this is not the case of the system-tools. :-)
We are not in the nineties anymore. ;-)

OK. Nevertheless they are small comparative advantages of GNOME related with
KDE in Fedora. :-) That is why there Fedora KDE users after all, we are not
masochists, you know? ;-)
Notice that the point that Kevin stressed remains, public relations are
important and you words can be placed out of context quite easily. :-)
Things have been improving a lot, and nowadays I can notice that I am using
Fedora no matter what the DE I am using (even on XFCE FWIW) and that is more
visible to me than the differences between the DE's.
So even if I understand what you mean the communication is important and
believe me KDE in Fedora feels like Fedora, and sometimes this seems a
difficult message to pass, both inside and outside Fedora. :-)
