KDE is getting to be quite good.

It is stable and responsive, and that matters to me.
Recent versions don't really look any worse than Mac OS X either if you care about that. IMO, after playing a bit with a Mac, it seems obvious that both KDE and Gnome are heavily inspired on Mac OS(The stupid control panel for example).

But while Gnome, well, is Gnome, the latest KDE does a better job in keeping the useless eye-candy from affecting usability negatively.

Now C++ and very few not quite excellent apps and applets are the only items remaining on my minus list.

If I had to recommend a Linux Desktop, without any doubt, it would have to be a KDE distribution.
