Wonder how many people will complain about Enlightenment not being here again, this year, lol
I voted Kde again.
I actually did a lot of swapping around this year. I moved to a highbrid setup featuring the Mate setup with the Cinnamon effects, for about 3 and a half months, then i moved to Gnome shell for an equally amount of time. One crucial change i had to do to Gnome shell was change the hot corner behaviour. I changed it so it showed the applications menu by default instead of the open applications. Actually that took me ages to find an extension that did that, and once i did, it was deemed as a beta, but it worked nicely for me. I also changed the dash so it was always showing and i used that like a task manager.
I really like the look gtk3, and Gnome shell, so it was quite nice. Eventually, things just bugged me and i considered it an inconvenience to use it, so i switched back to my Mate/Cinnamon setup for about another month. It improved on the inconveniences i had with Gnome shell, but i now faced new annoyances.
I'm back using Kde, and other than the menu i am happiest with it. (I am aware of the other menus for Kde, but i don't like any, the classic menu seems to suite me best, but i would like to see it conform to the desktop theme a little instead of exclusively to the colour them)
Ever since the icon task manage was made available to Kde, i have been very very happy with kde, and it seems to be getting better. That is with the exception of Opensuse, for a distro that has a reputation for delivering one of the best kde experiences, i can not understand why they're persistent at removing the 'remaining time' feature in the battery monitor.
