When I switched into Gnome desktop, it downloaded Kate via "System > Admin > Get
Software" or something like that and from the stock repos. Weird, Gnome
downloads KDE stuff better than KDE does. Something must be different in the
way they interface to PackageKit, or does Gnome use yum instead? Never having
been a Gnome user I'm not sure about that. Any comments?
