I don't use either, but did I read somewhere that Nautilus's behavior can be easliy changed so as NOT to use "spatial" format??

OK, being a man of habits, I guess I voted Gnome some days ago.

I know I can't, but otherwise I would like to change my vote to XFCE. Out of curiosity, I installed 4.2RC3 just a few minutes ago, and already I'm hooked. I can't believe the speed. This thing is FAST! I very seriously doubt wether I'll go back to Gnome after this.

Update, two hours later: Excuse me for sounding like a high school kid who's just fallen in love, but hey..., I have. I was considering to buy a new machine and gain some speed, but now I won't have to for at least another two years. XFCE has saved me a few hundred bucks today.

I voted KDE. I've really tried to like Gnome, mostly because it's definately faster than KDE and looks more professional. But the lack of usability features kills it for me. KDE, while not particuarly quick (although recent revisions have appeared to sped things up considerably) and pretty (with default themes), I really feel it's a power user's desktop environment.

Wonder what Linus uses? ;-) I believe I read a couple of years ago that while he refuses to make any endorsements, he was using KDE. What about Alan Cox, RMS (most likely NOT KDE), ESR?? Will they ever tell? Have they voted in this poll?? <|8^)

All I've used is KDE which is great on the computers at university but at home it runs achingly slowly (I don't have much RAM). But thanks to this thread I've found out that XFCE exists, which will hopefully run better on my machine.

voted for KDE.
i never liked kde or even qt apps because the default theme/colors/icons were sorry to damn fugly.
but with Qinx style, custom colors and Reinhardt Icons its quite usable and i believe kde offers best integrated desktop experience. XFCE kicks arse if don't feel comfortable neither with kde/gnome or fluxbox/wmaker

Gnome -- though as I said before, I'll probably be in XFCE soon.
