I personally just encourage people to switch to KDE.

This "users are idiots, and are confused by functionality" mentality of 
Gnome is a disease. If you think your users are idiots, only idiots will 
use it. I don't use Gnome, because in striving to be simple, it has long 
since reached the point where it simply doesn't do what I need it to do.

Please, just tell people to use KDE.
