I've briefly tried a few desktop environments now and have one that I consider my favorite. I'm curious what everyone else's preferences are and why that is. I'm not looking to start a flame war. Let's have a constructive discussion please.
Personally I like XFCE. I find it to be lightweight and trouble free. When I used Cinnamon I would run into bugs on a daily basis. When I used Mate I found it simple and lacking. New versions of Gnome are too strange and bloated for me.
