This is not quite correct. Virtually all GUIs make use of X Window facilties, but they are not X Window. Most widespread are and . Despite that KDE currently offers more features, Gnome's concept is imo more powerful (apps not limited to just C++) and proven (it's based on the same toolkit as The Gimp), and it does not suffer from legal problems due to TrollTechs proprietary (despite available as source, you are not allowed to modify it) Qt library as KDE does.

Personally I use FVWM, and, occasionally, KDE. I'll switch over to Gnome once its beyond beta.
