The term "knock-off" is fairly self explanatory. As for the rest ,
well I have booted up many different distributions, I never used
GNOME, always KDE. I have seen a few different implementations of KDE.
Now under the hood,KDE is KDE but from one distro to the next, it
seemed like they gave it its own feel. The  default KDE implementation
that I used on F7 left alot to be desired, it looked to me like GNOME
with a KDE twist, it looked to me like GNOME with KDE spray-paint,
maybe that explains what I mean by knockoff. I stopped distro hopping,
none of the others interest me anymore, Fedora is where I want to be,
but I couldn't use KDE on Fedora, it just didn't work for me. It
didn't feel right, I switched over to GNOME, it fit better and until I
started using Fedora I never even considered GNOME an option. I had
tried it in one or two other distros but much preferred KDE, hands
down. Well I finally found my distribution of choice, but I had to
give up KDE to use it, I don't regret it in the slightest. Now I use
GNOME.
