I kind of jump back and forth between Xmonad, MATE and KDE (yes, plasma is a bit overkill. But it`s the "everything usually just works desktop")
I`ve tried AwesomeWm tho', it`s pretty good. But i find myself wanting Xmonads way of tilling al the time.

Seeing as this thread is still going, I just moved away from Gnome a few months ago in favor of Openbox. Now I find that I really want to try something like Awesome.

On my main desktop though, nothing provides more eyecandy than Compiz running as a standalone window manager with some conky/lua work. SO MUCH SHINY.

Good old Fluxbox here. I've been working on getting some dockapps customized and/or rewritten for modern Linux kernels (ACPI monitoring dockapp, for example). I do use the XFCE terminal with Fluxbox tho, very good tabbed terminal with almost no dependencies.

I switch DE's all the time. Right now, I'm onto Cinnamon, with Docky installed.

I'd say this scheme tops the rest of our desktops. Talk about an "upgrade." ;)

I do like how he accomplished all of his goals and has the same computing environment across radically different machines.

There are a surprising number of people using incredibly old systems for their day-to-day computing. Sparkler Filter is still using an IBM 402 electromechanical tabulator from the 1940's for their financial processing.

Unsurprisingly, I see a lot of people who know not the difference between a desktop environment, a window manager, and even distros!

Ok... so were you going to actually provide some useful information, or just sit there and be all smug?

 

The days of rolling your own *nix from scratch are long gone. For mass market appeal, you have to trade off technical know-how for convenience -- there are zillions of options about everything, and most of them come nicely packaged and easy to install. It's not really practical to fault someone for not understanding the technical guts of things if they don't have much interest in it.

 

There are automobile purists out there who will scoff at anyone who drives a car with an automatic transmission and who do all their own engine work. Me? I can't drive standard, I don't understand anything that goes on under the hood, and I don't give a crap. I just want to use my car, and know that I can find someone who can fix it if it breaks.

 

And don't even get me started on the ham radio OTs who still insist that *real* radios have vacuum tubes and that doing away with the code requirement is tantamount to blasphemy. Sure, I could add crystals by hand and send CW with a straight key if I wanted... but not everyone is in the game for the same reasons.

 

The same principle applies to computers. Those who are interested will find a way to learn, but it's presumptuous to assume that everybody has to know the things that you do.

Most of the time just MATE although I will on occasion switch to LXDE, XFCE, or IceWM.
