Gnome Linus Torvalds piped up in the comments of a Google+ posting by Linux kernel hacker Dave Jones to air his true feelings about Gnome 3: "it's not that I have rendering problems with gnome3 (although I do have those too), it's that the user experience of Gnome3 even without rendering problems is unacceptable." People care what Linus thinks, and when he ditched KDE for Gnome a couple of years ago, people took note. Now he's using Xfce.

All these years I've been using GNOME as the primary DE for my relatively current home desktop. GNUstep/ROX-filer combo or XFCE for less powerful machines and mobiles. I've settled for LXDE for my home machines.

It's lighter (ergo faster) than XFCE (GNOME-light IMHO). And most of the time my applications are in full screen so all I need is a taskbar and menu/launcher. Maybe I'll find time to experiment once E17 goes final ;)
