Question Which Is Your Favorite Desktop Environment?


My favorite Desktop Environment is KDE. I think it's the best piece of software ever made and now, when KDE 4.2 is coming out I'm even more excited..

Gotcha - http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...e-year-695620/

I understand; despite jeremy's feelings on the matter, and what anyone else says, Enlightenment DR17 is just a system tray away from being a full-blown desktop environment.

At one point, long ago, I said Linspire is the best OS ever. I now feel I should be slapped silly for saying this. Well, after having XP screw me over so badly ... anything else is the best thing ever.

While the polls are running, and for a short time after the winners are announced, we prefer to not open competing threads. Although it can be a good thing to include all the DEs available, in reality most of them are used to little that they don't get any real votes. Give it a few months and open a new poll.

If you do start a new poll sometime soon, please try to separate KDE 3.x from kde 4.x. So far, my experience of KDE 4 hasn't been positive and I certainly wouldn't want to do anything that could be interpreted as a positive vote for that piece of crud (...but they could have fixed it by then...maybe).

I second salasi's comments... KDE4.1 is miserable so far.

IceWM?

Plan 9?

fluxbox / openbox

Oh you said desktop environment. Then wouldn't it be Nautilus and not Gnome? And other inconsistencies?

IceWM, Plan9, Fluxbox and Openbox are window managers, Shadow 7.

Also, Nautilus is a file manager for the GNOME desktop environment.

It use to be Kde..but now it's Lxde.
Kde at idle used almost 300megs of memory..just setting there and doing nothing.
Lxde at idle uses around 65megs of memory.

Closing because it is redundant.
