I did not like KDE at all, in my opinion. I just do not like the way it looks, but again, my opinion. I think my favorite DE has to be Unity. It is so clean and stable under 12.04 and 12.10.

Going on another topic, I wish Canonical wouldn't make you install SDL by yourself. How about make it pre-installed on the DVD, or help new users who are starting linux how to install SDL.
