    Three Mint machines with IceWM, Two CRUX, one a headless server so no "GUI" and one with OpenBox, Two Ubuntu boxes both with Gnome, A headless Slackware server with IceWM in case I need to VNC in and one CentOS with Gnome.

    I've been an enthusiastic IceWM user going on ten years. We first met on Mandrake 8.2. I've been in love with its speed and simplicity ever since.

    I voted 'other' as KDE3.5 wasn't part of the options.

    Gnome 2 or LXDE. When Ubuntu 10.04 is no longer supported, then LXDE only.

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.

    Gnome 2.28 on Scientific Linux 6.

    I'm currently running Gnome3 in fallback mode, Xfce, and awesome, trying to decide which I want to keep. Gnome is falling further behind all the time, and awesome isn't, really, but I haven't tossed it yet. Xfce most often, but it has its own quirks. I haven't seen much that I really liked in awhile.

    The polls that we post on these forums are not intended to be highly accurate, but it appears already that there's been a big drop in Gnome and KDE users when you look at the GUI poll from last year.

    Of course, it could be that those users simply haven't gotten around to voting yet, and the current poll does still have almost a year of voting time left, so things could change.

    I think a lot of people (such as myself) are sticking with Gnome 2.x and KDE 3.x instead of Gnome 3 and KDE 4, especially those of us who are running RHEL and clones. Although RHEL, SL, and CentOS 6.x support KDE 4.3, they are still at Gnome 2.28, so in my case I selected "other" for desktop window manager since I'm using Gnome 2.28.

    It's interesting that Xfce4 is maintaining the lead in the poll.

    You can hardly blame anyone for taking that route. I was switching back and forth between Gnome3 and KDE4 quite a bit, but Gnome seems so broken here lately that I've stopped using it at all. Sooner or later, some of the bugs will be fixed and I'll give it another go. While the polish and features of full desktop environments suit me well, it's hard to beat the simplicity of a standalone window manager, such as Openbox.
