    I'm using Gnome.

    And unity seems to be missing.

    Well, since you mentioned it...

    I'm curious how you compare KDE4 to KDE3, and though you didn't mention it, what you think of new Gnome compared to previous version?

    I liked KDE3 but have never been able to grow all that fond of KDE4, although it is finally quite usable. As for Gnome 3, I started a thread about it and Gnome Shell just a few weeks back that can be found here:

    http://www.linuxforums.org/forum/cof...gnome-3-a.html

    I'm using Gnome 3 at the moment and it works pretty well, and seems far more stable than KDE4 did when it was first released. However, I've still not decided which I'll be sticking with, if either of them. Several of the simple window managers are very nice, and Xfce is still a good substitute for those that don't want to use the new versions of Gnome, or KDE.


    Edit: actually, I'm switching back and forth between KDE4 and Gnome3, finding things that I like and annoyances with both of them. It would be great if you could easily have the best of both worlds without having to install them both.

    KDE and Xfce, in no particular order. At the moment I'm using KDE 4.5.5.

    <----------- KDE for the win here. There are actually many tricks I can do to make it perform faster and with more stability. And the only way it's going to get better is if people keep using it.

    I've been playing around once again with icewm for the last few days myself, jay. Just curious... what apps are you using for file manager, text editor, terminal, cd/dvd burning, etc?

    Well not Jay here , but in Icewm I use
    burner=XFburn
    file manager=rox file manager (with custom automount scripts for USB and safely remove usb scripts)
    terminals=roxterm and urxvt
    text editor=leafpad and Geany
    Browser=Mainly Iceape(Seamonkey) because of integrated chat and mail client. I play with Iron Browser and Opera though. Gave up on Firefox.
    Graphics= Gimp and Neonview and feh,(used as wallpaper setter also)
    Office= Libreoffice and epdfviewer
    Wireless=rutillt or Ceni
    Package manager=apt and Synaptic and dpkg
    Movie player=Gxine +browser plugins
    Music Player=QMMP
    Terminal Stream Radio=Pianobar

    Screenshot I use is a custom made script by a AntiX member that needs scrot and play and imagemagick and feh installed. I don't think it will work in Arch because of different file locations maybe. It is a light weight and pretty slick screenshot gui app though with sound effects and resizer built in.

    Everything is pretty lightweight except for Browsers and Libreoffice and Gimp (coulda used MTPaint since I am no artist).
