The Ultimate Guide to Choosing the Right Desktop Environment

I hadn’t expected such a response to my article about choosing the right desktop environment when I was writing it, but as most commenters noted, it was a really quick write-up, a kind of a brainstorming session about desktop environments where I indicated the pros and cons. Well this time, I tried improving it. More info, more research and more work are contained in this post. Enjoy, and favorite it if you like in the case you’re in a dilemma with you Linux install.

There will be a follow-up post about Window managers, so if you’re interested in that, subscribe to my feed and you’ll be updated when it’s published!

Note these are my personal impressions, so feel free to post your opinion on the article but please keep it friendly, no flame wars/accusations/RMS eats babies etc.
