Linux I volunteer as tech support for a small organization. For years we relied on Ubuntu on our desktops, but the users didn't like it when Ubuntu switched to the Unity interface. This article tells about our search for a replacement and why we decided on Xfce running atop Linux Mint.

I know KDE gets a bit of a bad wrap on here, but these days it's pretty stable and I think it's another good alternative for users making the switch from Windows. Plus it also follows a similar desktop layout as Windows (excluding Win8 obviously) so users can draw a little more from past experience than they perhaps could with other Linux desktop environments.

That said, KDE4 does require a fair chunk of hardware. It's not one for the low end hardware and is easily one of the most bloated DEs on Linux (personally I make use of most of KDEs features, so it's not "bloat" to me - but I appreciate everybody's use cases are different)
