Gnome The day is finally here, the day that the GNOME team releases GNOME 3.0, the first major revision of the GNOME project since 2002. Little of GNOME 2.x is left in GNOME 3.0, and as such, you could call it GNOME's KDE4. We're living in fortunate times, what, with two wildly divergent open source desktops.

Xfce all the way !

I am using Xfce right now on my MacBook 2.1 (single-boot Lucid 64), and I am pleased with it...
I also have a Debian Squeeze Xfce Mac iBook G3 (single-boot as well).
I believe Xfce is the way to go.
I enjoy it with a classic KDE3 look, or win2k look, taskbar on the bottom, old-fashion icons on the desktop...
I guess the best combo would be Debian Stable/Testing with Xfce...
On some boxes, Ubuntu is needed, like my MacBook 2.1, who won't single-boot Debian for some unknown reason, so I stick to LTS release...
