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.

Good to see there's some growing interest for Xfce. KDE4 is a fiasco alright. GNOME is however getting better except for the "fisher price" UI of Gnome Shell. So let's have the best of both worlds : GNOME platform + functional desktop = Xfce.

I never used GNOME2 because it uses far too much RAM for what it does. KDE3 was quite ok, but felt like an unfinished business which then turned into a the major UI fiasco and memory hog known as KDE4.
