Linux question on KDE vs Gnome?

Effectively i’m getting my new pc soon, (quad core yada yada yada) which is going to be running Vista 64 (which will be new for me)

I intend to use my old pc (AMD64 4000+ ) into a linux machine for use as a gaming server at lans, and as a workstation for coding etc.

I’ve decided after looking at numerous suggestoins from people i know, that i’m going with the openSUSE distro.

HOWEVER i want to get a feel for it before i install somewhat, so i wanted to try the live CD out on my laptop. Thanks to a virus i have, which has stoped me installing and un-installing anything on my windows platform i’m reformatting soon anyway, so i’ll be dual-booting linux and windows on the laptop.

Anyway.

I just wanted to ask for the live CD as a total windows person, should i download the KDE or Gnome version

On a similar note, does anyone know any useful software to download for the linux system. (compilers anti-virus / spy software, stuff like that)

Thanks in advance.
