JavaDesktop is just a distro name, it uses Gnome last I heard.

Gnome is better I think. It's all just GUI anyway.

FYI, Xfce is actually a Window Manager that is based on xfwm4. Also you spelled Xfce wrong. If you want to think Xfce is a desktop manager, you have to provide both Xfce and ROX on the same line. With out ROX, Xfce will just be a Window Manager.

Nah, xfce is a desktop environment....xfwm is the window manager for it.

Why does ROX make it something else anyway?

KDE, it has the best integration among application, it has a lot of options so you can customize it a lot, it has most of the best applications and the Konqui is just so cute Well and KDE 4 is almost here which is one a whole new level.

I voted for Rox, though I prefer a straight fluxbox and no dm.
Of the 'big guns' KDE is way better than all the others put together!
(and I don't use it anymore.)

Xfce is a Window Mananger. When ROX is included, Xfce becomes a Window and Desktop Mananger.

I had to vote for KDE this year. Gnome is getting slower and buggier every year. I am not sure what is going on with the developers. KDE4 looks very promissing as well.
