The ROX vote held up well, despite the total votes this year being the lowest ever

LXDE Handedness

I prefer KDE, but I do use GNOME and XFCE for special purposes. However, the problem with LXDE (as of February 2009) the thing I can't stand is that I'm a soft paw and I can't set LXDE to left handed.

small % of votes keeps KDE to no2. But it was no 1 in my heart.

I find KDE too bloated to use. Gnome is much cleaner and speedier without loosing good looks.

Even though the poll is closed now, I would say GNOME - but with the Shell, not with the Panel.
