I used to use kde then i discovered gnome 2.4 looked twice as good. (with some decent themes and icon sets)

I use xfce (on my laptop) and kde 3.2 b1 (on my main machine).. voted for xfce since kde will probably win anyways =)

I used to use gnome 1.4, but I don't like gnome 2.x very much, it's just ugly.

KDE for me. The 3.2-beta knocks sock of anything else. Easiest to work with and easiest to program.

I went with Kde. It may be take a good bite out of the system resoucres, but it's surely the best looking desktop I've ever seen.

why do people continually split the gnome vote by putting Ximian *and* Gnome in polls, not really fair if you ask me.

Ximian only got a few votes so far, I'd hardly call that a split from the gnome vote.

yeah, so far, but many polls in the past with both ximian and gnome listed have fractured the gnome vote significantly. i really dont see why people do that, ximian is just a gnome distribution, on the same par as Redhat's, or SUSE's gnome distro, so it really isn't a desktop environment of its own.

I used to be a big KDE fan but now I really like Gnome...not as bloated as KDE!

I would pick KDE over Aqua/OSX they way it currently is. It has better integration than Windows, lots of features, unbelievable functionality.. etc.. etc.. etc..

Now if we can only get rid of that butt ugly default theme!

Actually, as I recall, XFCE was there before Gnome.
I'm really surprised: after all these years in the shade of KDE/Gnome, it's starting to get some recognition.
My desktop was somewhat rare, cool, you've all ruined it now, stop switching .

XFCE 4 rocks, really, check it out.

i originally voted for kde, but that was before i installed slackware 9.1 with xfce 4 and man was i impressed. everything just worked with the exception of two minor tweaks to lilo and xf86config. i need to change my vote to XFce!
