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.

And, of course, if you use Fedora you get the latest untested bleeding edge. That's what Fedora is for. Linus was using Fedora, and if he didn't want to be a guinea pig, he should have known better and used something different.

However, ubuntu 8.04 LTS is NOT for that; but yet that is what was done.

Gentoo staved off KDE4 a little longer - not making the switch until KDE 4.3 was available. But it was one of the few (other than say RHEL, Debian, and possibly SLES) that did not do so so quickly.
