    Ok guys, what do you use primarily?

    I started using KDE by default, but ive been playing a little with Gnome, and its certainly growing on me! not sure i like the main taskbar being at the top, but if i dont im sure theres a way to change it. :biggrin

    (Sorry theres only a couple of options, these are the main ones i think)

    You forgot to create the actual poll so people could vote, even if they didn't post. I use Gnome mainly, which is on my Debian box at work. I have a number of Linux virtual machines in VMware so it just depends on whether they are running KDE or Gnome.

    EDIT: My bad. Forget what I said about the poll not being there. I didn't scroll up. :oops:

    I am a Gnome user. I've never really liked the KDE interface because it always takes a lot of work to make it easy on my old eyes, plus there have been problems with the way a lot of fonts display in KDE too. I can have it set to the same font size and display resolution as Gnome, and many of the fonts in KDE look so small I have constant eye strain using it.

    Maybe KDE has figured it out by now, I don't know, I'm just so used to Gnome at this point I don't think I'll switch. I like the Nautilus interface for a graphical presentation of the file system better than I like Konqueror too. It's the font thing with this again too.

    As to Gnome having the task bar at the top, well, I really like it. When I log onto a Windows machine anymore I'm constantly going to the top left corner of the screen to start applications.... :biggrin

    I use KDE, mainly because I don't use the linux machines much so I tend to stick with the default.:oops:

    I use Gnome basically because its not as bloated as KDE and its very functional :)

    Sometimes I switch to XFCE (Blindingly fast, Good for people that want low resource on slower computers) which is also rather functional and good looking

    Having a bar at the top of the screen dunne bother me on Gnome, I rig it with useful shortcuts, CPU/Network/Load/HDD Monitors, and a Commandline Input, Comes in really really useful and saves me going though all the menus, The Right click menu on XFCE is also a interesting feature =)

    (By the way, if you want to try KDE/XFCE on Ubuntu, Install either Kubuntu-desktop or Xubuntu-dektop Packages using Synapic or Apt-get)

    Having Gnome AND Kde installed at the same time would just be overkill :p Still I do use a fair few KDE apps here on Gnome, Specially Amarok.

    Ive Simply just got comfortable with Gnome
