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

XFCE!!! Has the features of GNOME and KDE that I need minus the bloat.

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
