A newbie who is using a computer with << 256 MB RAM is not likely
to use either Gnome or KDE. At least not for long. They'll either switch
back to Win95 (or some such thing) and forever after think that "Linux
is horribly slow", or they will get enough of a clue to switch to
something less resource-intensive, like Window Maker. 

(Not to make little of the great work done by both Gnome and KDE
projects. If you have the cycles and memory, they are great.)
