It's a pity that's LXDE is coming to an end. I loved putting it on ancient computers.

It will get superseded by LXQt.

Arch might come to the rescue. They have an experimental fork of LXDE using gtk3: https://www.archlinux.org/groups/x86_64/lxde-gtk3/

If this progresses, it could well be that Arch-derived distros such as Manjaro will adopt this fork. It may even be released for general distro use.

Thanks for the heads-up there hydrurga.

e16, it is not in here, I dusted it off and modded some of its epplets to fit my needs. I like cinnamon, but the real complaint about that is they who ever they are, removed the switch VDT's via root window using the mouse wheel, and well I cannot put up with such behavior nor will I be givein to it, so I always find myself using something else.

+1 XFCE. Relatively unobtrusive resource usage for a full-featured DE and highly customizable.

It's no surprise that KDE was the plurality winner again with XFCE 2nd. They are both very flexible desktops. I like the look of Trinity Desktop (TDE). One issue with TDE is that jpeg icons are not displayed on desktop files on the menu and on any of TDE's file managers. I will be in the process of converting those jpeg icons to the png format using Chalk which is part of KOffice. Yes, TDE still supports KOffice.

Didn't realise KDE was that popular. Congratulations to Xfce for second place, the best DE in my opinion. I'm surprised LXQt didn't get more votes: it's a quality, up-and-coming lightweight DE, but it hasn't had widespread adoption. Its time will come.

In my case I actually like Trinity better, but I wind up using KDE more, so had to vote with KDE... then again I also prefer JWM on Puppy... I think I'm confused.

I missed the vote, but 2018 was the year I came back to KDE and it's like being with an old friend again. It's changed, it's got a different fashion sense, it's learned some cool new stuff (eg KDE Connect), but it's still the same person. KDE was my first Linux desktop, but I moved to others (mainly XFCE) about a decade ago. Now it's good to be back.

There should be a choice for none under DE since WM is separate.
