KDE vs GNOME
 
Amazingly my vi vs emacs thread didn't start a flame war. Maybe this will but which is your favorite DE/WM

KDE Openbox Fluxbox for me

Xfce here. If you had the option for Gnome 2.x, then I would have chose that also.

asipper 12-07-2011 07:07 PM

Gnome 3 is the reason I use KDE... And Slackware doesn't have gnome but mostly gnome 3


Mate is a fork so you might want to choose that.

I prefer the simple, light-weight elegance of Fluxbox.

How is fuxbox anyway? How is it compared to XFCE?

I prefer KDE

KDE. I've never liked GNOME. I do feel interested in trying Xfce and LXDE some time in the near near future.

Xfce…it just kind of stuck with me when I first tried it as the DE on my first Arch system. :p

KDE, then fluxbox, then xfce. KDE4 was rough when it first came out, but it's OK now. Gnomes belong in the garden. :)

IMO this poll should have a ranking system. For instance I use and love KDE, but have recently tried Unity and Gnome shell, and even though there are problems (and yes, KDE has problems too), there are good ideas. Hell I even took some of the concepts and implemented them in my KDE setup. In no way do I forget XFCE and the likes : whenever I get to repair an old PC, I stick one of these lightweight DEs on there.

Extremely light it takes up around a megabyte of RAM

I am using Gnome 2 on Mageia currently and using Xfce4 with SalixOS. I find xfce pleasantly refreshing to use now days. I also use Openbox for myself but need a full DE for the family.

I'm a Gnome 2 to Xfce migrant, although I do prefer Nautilus to Thunar. I need a proper desktop for control over keyboard drivers, but I have a soft spot for Icewm. It was the first GUI I ever used, and it still looks good in Vector Light and AntiX.
