I've just decided to make the switch to linux and am overwhelmed by all the choices, is XFCE going to be tough too learn how to navigate? gotta keep the wife in mind also, it'll need to act mostly like windoz or she'll freak out.

I'm not trying to be a troll or spam, BUT if we are going to teach people Linux, then let's please do it correctly.

These listed below are not Desktops. These are window managers which can be used as a desktop but to call them one such as KDE or Gnome is not correct.

fluxbox
Black Box
enlightenment
windowmaker

You should edit the title and make it as:

Whats your favorite graphical desktop or window manager.

I take pride in being a Linux geek and so should you, if you want to teach people properly.

I have only used gnome in my current gentoo box and previous centos install.

I ran from windows once I installed it the first time with centos.Gentoo is far better than the dead rat clone.

The old thread that wouldn't die..

I like Gnome with Beryl window manager (on ubuntu 64) these days. Of course for servers, I still dig the black and white command line.

About 4 months ago I would have said Fluxbox due to the fact you can pretty much make it what you want to. Since switching my main lappy from Gentoo to Sabayon (both Gentoo, I know) I've gotten to see a KDE I didn't think was possible.

So sexy, looks astonishingly good with Beryl and can be pretty decently modded. Yeah, it's fluffy, but with a 2.13 C2D and 2 gig of 667, it's not like KDE is causing any grief.

My second pick used to be Gnome after Fluxbox for quick, easy installs and a decently pleasing stock layout. Thank you folks at Sabayon for enlightening me.

-edit- Conky does some pretty goofy things in KDE + Beryl, but in a good way. =)

I tried KDE and I found it too congested. I prefer Gnome's clean and logical look.

Adding in compizfusion along with that, it's rock solid.

Wmii, it took all the right queues from Plan 9. It's a tiling WM that represents your entire desktop as a virtual file system mounted in memory. To create, delete and modify windows all you do is modify the appropriate files via wmiir so you can script for it in any language you want, you just need to know the file system hierarchy.

I think if I could I would change my vote to Gnome now as well. I like experimenting with various distros and the modded Gnome that is included by default with Linux Mint won me over. Very clean, single bar, totally condensed menu. I can dig it. The new KDE has turned me off as well.
