Well, the main differences between Gnome and KDE are in what it's like
to develop with them.  Speaking roughly (you did ask for a flamewar
afterall!) Gnome development is more focused on leveraging standards
(such as CORBA), and on portability; KDE is more focused on keeping
things easy and simple for developers.

If you don't plan to develop with them, then a good way to choose is to
look at which widget set you are using with existing apps, since GNOME
apps have to use gtk+ and kde apps have to use qt.  You could save
resources and complication by not installing two widget sets.
