    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.

    Personally, I've loved using MATE since Mint introduced it. The 1.4 version is nice & stable, it looks and acts just like GNOME 2.x, and it's not a resource hog like Unity.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    MATE does look like Gnome 2.x, and I have a weird feeling. Am I the only person on this site that does not like Cinnamon?

    I would edit the original post to include the steps. And I just tried this, and WOW. It works wonders. Thank you.

    lol, I think I tried a crappy version of cinnamon when I hated it. I'm using Cinnamon right now. It is the best DE for me.
