    Which Fedora DE do you prefer?

    I as to which Fedora Spin DE you prefer? Gnome? KDE? LXDE? XFCE? Or another one? Tell us which one and why, and vote in the poll!

    Mine:

    Fedora 14
    KDE, because I love how pretty it is, it is very eye catching and I love the Plasmoids. Plus, I do not know why, but it seems to run faster on my PC than the Gnome version did...
    I do not know why I left Fedora for Ubuntu, please I ask of you to forgive me O Blessed One, I shall never betray you again...

    Gnome, for basically the same reason as giulix. It was the default desktop so that's what I've stuck with. I've tried many of the others but it's too much trouble to learn my way around them.

    Re: Which Fedora DE do you prefer?

    Gnome, on the proviso it's Gnome 2.x (but don't turn this into another Gnome3 thread). KDE has come a long way, as has XFCE recently, but LXDE is still too clunky for my liking, even though I use it on my old laptop because it's lightweight.

    Re: Which Fedora DE do you prefer?

    Don't know what Linux desktop I like nowadays. I used to like KDE 3, then I liked Gnome 2. Now I kind of like KDE 4.6. Never really fell in love with xfce and LXDE hasn't lasted more than 5 minutes on a machine. Haven't tried E17 or any of the Boxes.... Gnome Shell doesn't do much for me either I suppose I'm using KDE because I'm not really happy with the way Gnome went

    Re: Which Fedora DE do you prefer?

    Been using KDE since 1998.

    Really did try to like Gnome for one six month period in about 2004, but I never did appreciate the top/bottom panel idea.

    When I found myself configuring Gnome to work with just one panel, I decided to go back to KDE and apart from the famous rocky patch around early KDE4 I've been happy there since.

    I don't use a DE. I use just a standalone window manager (WindowMaker). Much faster and more stable than any DE.

    No, it's not. In fact, that's one of the reasons why development on it (which is still continuing) has been slow. It just works, and very well.

    Re: Which Fedora DE do you prefer?

    When I did try KDE, it felt too much like Windows, so I went with Gnome. I have Fedora 15 Beta downloaded and waiting to be burned to a DVD so that I can finally try out Gnome 3.
