I was just wondering what desktop environment people use on their linux systems?
Let me start off:
I use Gnome Desktop Manager (mostly on ubuntu).
It is simple, light weight, neat, organized and quite fast. I like the default configuration with a menu on top and another bar at the bottom.
KDE is just to heavy for me, Konqueror is a nice file manager (can’t stand it as a web browser) with many features. Still, KDE is to formal, too big and uses lots of your RAM. Also, it is too classical (like windows…).
Icewm is a mix of both, but then it is not as nice and colorfull as KDE (which is the only reason I’d use KDE, but I value speed more than eyecandy).
Other DE such as fluxbox are nice for live cds. You can have access to all your programs right from the desktop. You can’t really configure much, but you usually don’t do that on live cds anyways.
So what are your favourite Desktop Environments and why?
