Desktop Environment of the Year
If you're looking for Fluxbox, Window Maker, Enlightenment or similar options - they are in the Window Manager of the Year poll.

XFCE ... I liked it when I used it, I am just to lazy to replace gnome :)

XFCE, has to be. With the changes to KDE and Gnome and Canonical's Unity there is one desktop everyone, including Linus, falls back on.
I actually have to point out here that with the exception of Unity I appreciate all the desktop environments -- heck, Unity can be appreciated too. We should not forget this is a major thing that Linux has going for it compared to Windows or Mac and even the Window manager you don't like is probably ten times more configurable than the paid for alternative.

I'm going with xfce, too. The 4.8 update brought a bunch of stuff that it needed, and the whole gnome 3 debacle and argument means that those of us who liked gnome 2 get to stay in a familiar environment.

It would be nice to have more GUI config options for newer users, but the old hands at linux will have no problems.

KDE, it's what I use.

With retract of Gnome 2 MATE has a good advantage for father development

XFCE - it's the only DE I use if, for some unimaginable reason, I don't want to use i3wm.

KDE for me, although I do use others now and then. KDE 4 was rough when it first appeared, but it's OK now (I'm running 4.6.5).

XFCE all the way! KDE4 nearly made me go back to Windows.. No further comments.. :)

Rox-desktop with icewm is a great combination.

I gotta say xfce, but I've recently been using KDE on Debian. Pretty nice.
