Oh, it is a problem when it needs a whole bunch of dependencies
though.  There are certain things that actually need the whole Gnome
suite to run even though you may choose to use KDE.  That's silly and
it is definitely a problem in my eyes.  It smacks of Windwoes bloat. 
Individually the suites are great, bigh but great.  Yes, it is
fantastic when you can apps from one on the other that I don't deny.

But they are both getting larger and larger....where does it end?
I am only human, please forgive me if I make a mistake it is not deliberate.
Xmas may be over but,  PLEASE DON'T drink and drive you'll make it to
the next one that way.
