Xfce, as always.
A little late on next version, but no problem, the current do the job perfectly.

XFCE, hands down. Does everything that GNOME can, minus the bloat and the crummy window manager.

I have always used Gnome as the primary one.
Now given a second option I would prefer Lxde any day over KDE bloat

I don't know why but Gnome has had my vote ever since I began using Linux tried KDE and lxde didn't care much for either.
