    Different Desktops


    When I'm in Linux I use KDE. One day I decided to look at the various other Window environments such as FluxBox and GNOME (and one which looks so like Windows 95 it's scary!). I've noticed that some of them are much plainer and have less programs available in the menus. After that session I decided to stick with KDE for the time being. What I want to know is:

    Are any of the other desktop environments are better for manipulating the system/software or are they are all much the same?

    I'm not 100% sure, however I'm pretty sure that they're all the same. I know plenty of people who prefer working in other ones such as IceWM or Fluxbox or Enlightenment rather than KDE or Gnome or even XFCE. They say KDE and Gnome are too "helping hand".

    I've no idea really.

    Personally, I like the graphics from KDE however the way Gnome works, and everything else about Gnome. If only it was possible to have a desktop manager with the looks of KDE yet everything else of Gnome. :P
    (What really annoys me with KDE is that you see the file path in the title bar, rather than just the name of the folder)

    You really should stick to the one you like. Every person has a different preference, and use what they want - Use KDE if you want, or use Gnome, even use the one that looks like Win95. :P
    As I say, I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it makes much difference.
