I use Xmonad and never really went back to using a DE. If I ever the battle would be between Xfce and Gnome. This time around I voted for Gnome-shell.

If Unity wins I know it is time to go full time OpenBSD...

Xfce: as one of the developers once said, it just does the job without being in your face or under your feet. I could live with Mate, but I do wish they hadn't abandoned plain-text configuration files.

I've never understood what people think can be done with other DEs wich can't with XFCE -- to my mind it's just the simplest way to provide all the options available in a DE.

Eye candy. That's all.

I'm happy with just plain OpenBox. I'd consider OB with XFCE if my traveling netbook was more than 64G soldered on board.

I did forget WMs -- I'm sure they can probably do more than XFCE as far as functionality goes.

Voted XFCE.

Like Mate, but it gets slow over time. XFCE is snappy and quick on Slackware 14.2. Like it more and more.

Tough choice between plasma and cinnamon. Even budgie has come quiet far. I use all three, but i am biased to plasma for the sake of old times

I voted for Xfce. I love the level of customization, as well as all that can be done with panels. Don't get me going on the panel apps. However, I've been using Enlightenment for the past week (something I couldn't imagine after my first experiences with it ten years ago, but that was a different Enlightenment) and it may well rival Xfce for my favorite desktop environment.

I've tried a few of these but it is still KDE that does things the way I like. I have Lubuntu's LXDE on an old laptop and for a simplified desktop it impresses.

I like Enlightenment, TDE, and XFCE, not necessarily in that order.
My favorite distro is MX16 which uses a modified XFCE.
And then there's Elive 2.7.8 beta, Manjaro Community E20, and Kali E17.
And finally TDE-Ubuntu, and PCLinuxOS Trinity Big Daddy (and the minimalist Q4OS)
Decisions decisions...

Arrow

As long as it runs as fast as window managers, yet provides as DE, i vote for XFCE
