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.

Be interesting to see how many people selected window manager only if it were an option. I bet there's still a lot out there just running fluxbox or whatever with no desktop environment.

Cheers,
Steve

Been using Xfce for some years now, but I am getting more interested in coding with QT5 than the mortally wounded gtk2 and the never to be touched gtk3, so lxqt looks promising I may switch.

I'm a KDE user when I need a desktop, but Cinnamon is really slick, fairly lightweight, and has really impressed me this past year.

Smile Cinnamon is the best

Cinnamon is the most user friendly desktop. Unity and Gnome Shell are the worst desktops around.

My favourites are MATE and XFCE. Because MATE seems to have more developer activity (and releases) in 2014 compared to XFCE, I vote for MATE.

Apart from these two DE's I also like Gnome Shell, but I hate the new UI design of Gnome default Apps such as the UI design of Gnote, Nautilus, Gedit. It is also stupid that it depends on SystemD and Tracker. On the other hand the extension system is quite nice.
