Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

It's not just about convenience or user's habits, although they are also important.

My laptop has a numeric keyboard and the main keyboard and touchpad are shifted to the left. Because of that there is only one sensible place for the panel/dock - on the right side of the screen. Otherwise I would have to look at the panel all the time.

I am currently using Xfce with a fairly wide panel (plenty of space on the right anyway) configured in a "deskbar" mode.
