For kde, gnom configuration problem,Its problem with all o'sources they don't communicate well with their (not gaeky) users .maybe someone don't have time to read manuals and search on internet . Think about it ,can ur gf, or grandma use ur favorite distro without feel helples ?.free ,beautifull ,strong and easy to use softwares are not bizarre thing ,or ame i a dreamy naiv? ,its not rong to hide ur configurable strong gears for sharp minded/finger/eye peopl behind aesthetic interface for others.kes (not kess ) keep it simple is not enough .(ltpk)= lessen to ur people king.free to obtain & configure don't go well with hard to obtain &configure

I'm not familiar with firearms at all, so your comparison isn't really effective for me, but i think i get your point. Enlightenment is an odd ball and doesn't fit in any category perfectly?
I live in a slightly rural part of Australia, where mobile internet is also the only option for me, it also drops out for me, so i feel your pain.
You speak a lot of languages, that's very impressive, i speak Australian, English, American, Pig-latin, and a lot of crap; i even made up my own language for wizards, unfortunately since there's no more REAL wizards alive on Earth, i am the only one that understands this language, but i have faith that eventually the lost kingdom of wizards will one day return and then i will be accepted as the chosen one to raise up and save the human race from their own destruction in the face of power. You can thank me later.

My non geeky ex girlfriend used Debian quite comfortably once i installed it. I have heard people say statements like this before (especially in the Linux vs Windows thread). I personally strongly disagree with it. Once a distro is installed, many of them are just as easy to use as any other operating system. If you think about, the 'average' user just browsers the internet, goes on Facebook, Youtube ect. They might write up some word documents, view emails, ect, listen to music. These are easy things to do, and just as easy to do in Gnu/Linux. Gnu/Linux gets a reputation for being hard to use, not because it's actually hard to use, but really because many people are already used of doing things the 'Windows' way, and don't want to change. If you go on an OsX (mac) forum you'll find people who've seen the same thing (although in my opinion OsX is plain stupid and hard to use: honestly, why have a close button if it's not going to close a window.)

Alright, this entire post has been off topic, sorry for letting it go so long, i'll stop now ..

Wizard language ¡¡ .and u didnt curse windows for death???!_ _ i live in a ware zone so firearms have toke over my brain and i even don't have a weapon ___i will not thank u cous u have to hair me as counseller or somthig ___ most of gnu/linux distros are a way easiest than w8/7/xp but i didn't mean to compar, just complaining about elite mentality of some osource software teams and about ergonomic design of some oss that sometimes lock a littl bit messy ,as for example :configuration tools should be in the same place.i was more like comparing oss with the idial oos design.but it keeps getting better __iv never tried osx but if someone asked u to install it for him just install fbsd with kde4 and Cairo dok and tell him the truth after few weeks !!!! ___ its not off topic as we talk about design witch has a great portion of any denvironment

I voted for Xfce, but in the end my favorite is razor-qt. Unrivaled keyboard support (because you can use Openbox for the window manager), works well without compositing (unlike KDE, where running KDE without compositing is like running Unreal Tournament without colored lights), great defaults (unlike Xfce, which thinks you want two panels for some reason), and as fast and lightweight as LXDE.

Xfce is by far the best and the fastest DE.
