I do like my Cinnamon DE. It is efficient for my computing needs, the layout is fine, and I have learned the operation enough to keep it and not change it.

Most of them are too large for my needs. If I had to choose one, probably Enlightenment because of its amazing library system. (But its themes are still... eww.)

I'm happy with KDE Plasma. Runs fantastic on everything I own, and has slimmed down the resource usage a TON throughout 2019.

I voted for KDE (prefer earlier versions)... but I hope CDE will become better.

I voted MoonLightDE because I have no clue what it is, and had its latest update in 2017.

KDE is what I would use if I would use a DE.
It's got plenty of good software that was reponsible for really making me bond with Slackware/Linux, even if I don't use those programs anymore because I found better ones.
Credit where it's due, and all that.
