KDE definitely -- the kicker, other panels, good clock alternatives (the default in Kubuntu and Knoppix looks like it was inspired by those electric National Debt counters or something worse, but that's too easy to change). and the fact that you don't have to jump through a whole lot of hoops to switch the sides on your (max, min, close) window buttons. I was a Mac user from 1992 to June of last year (G4's power supply went out) and every once in awhile I get the yen to window-box the "old way".

I almost never use a GUI on Unix, but if I really have to, it's CDE

IMO, all UNIX GUIs are pretty rubbish... If I have to chose one, it would be CDE, but I never normally do. Plain old Xterm does for most things.

I dislike the trend of becoming more dependent on the GUI when there was no need. I also dislike the trend where KDE and the like keep incorporating Windows features everyone hates the most just to make it "familiar" instead of extending on features we want. I'd rather have tab completion for filenames than autocomplete -- tab complete at least waits to be asked before filling in a garbage wrong guess.

Worse, they're becoming the only way some bits of hardware can be used. Like bluetooth. They had excellent commandline support for it then gutted it and left it to rot. How're you supposed to automate that? Why should you need a working X server to use a bluetooth keyboard?
