I'd really like to know if any Slackers are using any of the new KDE releases that have killed off "The Evil Three"? and what is your opinion of what has taken their place?

Xfce on my Xubuntu desktop, but my "new" used netbook is running LinuxMint Cinnamon and I like that too.

Has to be KDE

I've used KDE since the early days. Also played around with QT - starting with QT2 - and liked it. I absolutely detest GTK. What a kludge! It is, of course, much improved since the early days but come on folks, why use awful work-arounds to approximate object orientation in C when you could have used C++?

Also, I get aggravated with the GTK-based apps I have to use (Gimp/Inkscape) because of the stupid copying of Microsoft's confusing mouse behaviour.

I got used to single click very many years ago. I could put up with double click - although I find it a pain - but aping Microsoft's "now you double click, now you single click" in file save dialogs is a total PITA.

KDE is based on a good, consistent underlying toolkit.

You can change that behaviour!
Yes, the double-click thing confuses me, why would anyone want that BS?

Please tell me. In my KDE desktop I always have single click selected. The GTK-based aoolications use the awful Microsoft File Mangler system of single click the left pane, double click the right. It is enough to make me long for an alternative to Gimp

Don't need a desktop environment ... I am happy running my own under fvwm, and compliance with DEs is a pain in the neck when it violates good old Xdefaults protocol ... just had to fake a GTK config to force bigger fonts for menus in acrobat, openoffice and browser

I like xfce for its smooth Mac OS X appearance but I also love the Elementary OS DE which is Pantheon! I actually wish someone would make a new MAC OS X DE.

single click drives me nuts.
constantly opening things i don't want opening,when i was just browsing through folders or something.

I've been using Netrunner for a while.
i think it uses a customized version of kde.
i'm not a fan of the kde desktop,but whatever the Netrunner devs have done works quite well for me.
