I thought I’d start a new topic as our conversation on Desktop Environments was getting interesting.
There is always a lot of debate about which DE is better and why people should use particular ones but as is anything in Linux it is down to personal preference.
I have always used Gnome, it was the one I prefered when I first started using Linux. I have never really liked KDE for some unknown reason. Since the release of Gnome3 though I have had to have a change. I tried Gnome3 for a few weeks but couldn’t get use to it. I’ve since moved onto XFCE, as well as changing distros from Fedora to Arch.
Others I have dabbled in are Enlightenment, Unity and I’ve even gone ‘barebones’ and tried window managers such as Ratpoison, wmii and awesome. Great fun and makes everyone look at you like some sort of computer god
So with that started…
What is your favourite DE and why?
What others have you tried and liked or disliked?
What would you recommend other people try that they might not of?
Again I would just like to say that everything is PERSONAL preference so please don’t go starting a pi**ing contest. >:(
