When I started using linux 6 months ago I first tried GNOME and it was OK but I found it a bit clunky (slow) and visually I did't like how the user interface flowed. I then tried XFCE and although it was better visually for me, interacting with it was still more work than I like. Finally I tried KDE and I really like it - coming from Windows it felt more comforatable and the user interface worked for me very well.

a very small $0.01 worth!

===========================
These are all window managers, as opposed to true DE's; though E 17 will likely qualify as a DE when it's *finally* released.
