I'm using KDE, but choosed both KDE and XFCE in this poll. I think, if you need big&cool desktop you will use KDE, and if you don't need lots of effects you will use XFCE.

Could 'Awesome' (WM based on LUA) be on the list please?
Also my 'alternative' LXDE isnt shown.

KDE 1.x (what more do you need I've seen it on machines with 16MB)
KDE 3.5.x (more than you'll ever need... yet doesn't fit in 640k)
Enlightenment 16 (snazzy and decent... sadly programmed by lunatics)
LXDE (what I use when I can't have the above)

That pretty much sums it up... I've used dwm on my Fujitsu P1120 which was as much tiling as I could cope with, as well as JWM and IceWM on occasion with a stint of running the ROX desktop... I still love that file manager.

I installed Fedora LXDE spin about 6 months ago on my Dell 17-inch workstation, and so far so good.

I use a tiling window manager i3wm evry where.
if only console is available then I just use tmux+ranger+vim+w3m
and this is no worse. I have increased the font size.
For one thing I will learn how to embed screenshots))
