Desktop Environment of the Year
 
If you're looking for Fluxbox, Window Maker, Enlightenment or similar options - they are in the Window Manager of the Year poll.

KDE3 vs. KDE4
 
I would be interested in knowing if members prefer KDE3 to KDE4, rather than KDE as a stand alone category. There is a big difference in these two versions of KDE.

I second that.

I strongly prefer KDE 3 to KDE 4. I'm having a hard time voting for a DE because of this. I really rely on KDE 3's features for a lot of things, but just can't get by with KDE 4 and it's weird desktop icon support.

What about FVWM-Crystal and Afterstep?

Would Enlightenment DR17 count as a desktop environment? I know there is no official release candidate, but it is still quite stable and seems to possess all of the internals of a desktop environment (the only out-of-the-box exception being a system tray).

Gnome.

While I am no fan or even user, I would say that the KDE people have had the most guts this year (apart from the strange 'oh-no-4.0-was-only-considered-a-testing-version' comments).
Looking forward to seeing Xfce 4.6 - bound to be interesting.

KDE 4 is not quite there yet, but it gets my vote because my kids think it is cool!

richs-lxh 01-11-2009 07:32 PM

Xfce obviously. Gnome is now bloated, Kde is just too busy...... Lxde doesn't know if it's Gnome or Xfce Lol!

Saptech 01-11-2009 11:01 PM

For a lightweight DE I would say LXDE...it still in development but it's coming along nicely.

Gotta be ROX

Always been a big KDE user, switched to Gnome. Voted for Gnome for the first time.

Another vote for Rox, especially for older computers.
