    Gnome on my main desktop
    XFCE on my laptops / netbooks
    Terminal on my servers

    I voted Gnome only because that was what I was using when typing this, but I have an Openbox only setup that is hard to beat. It's fast, lightweight, and not too many dependencies needing constant updating like with Gnome/KDE. I also have KDE4 and IceWM boxes, but don't use either of them very much.

    KDE-4.5.4 at the moment and Fluxbox when I feel funky.
    I do not respond to private messages asking for Linux help, Please keep it on the forums only.
    All new users please read this.** Forum FAQS. ** Adopt an unanswered post.

    I'd rather be lost at the lake than found at home.

    Icewm,Fluxbox,E17 on light gear. Gnome 2.30.2 on Heavy gear.

    Sorry, I popped my vote in the wrong box (other). Can you move it, please, Ozar? I use openbox mainly, which you've lumped together with fluxbox. In Debian I use lxde, but that's actually openbox too.

    Vote count has been adjusted, although the forum software might still tell you that you voted for "other".
