    I quite like their alt-tab switcher. It's almost like it imposes the dock but only with the icons of running applications. I kind of dig that.

    I really like elementary OS as is. But dang, this file manager crashes like it's the number one goal, and Noise (Music) simply not turning on is quite a headache too. Sometimes I just want to drop back to Gnome 3 where I know Rhythmbox and Nautilus, despite its boringness, will just work...

    My problem with that is that when switching apps, you have to look all the way down to the dock. It's just that I'm used to have the switcher on the very middle of the screen. Most of the time I switch apps via specific keyboard shortcuts and wmctrl, but still...

    Ahh, alright. I can totally see that. I never really thought twice about it. In fact I kind of liked it at first as I thought Gnome 3's alt-tab switcher was obnoxiously large and unnecessarily sized. Now that my habit has me looking at the bottom of the screen I just hadn't given much of a thought about it beyond what you just described.

    I probably have the most boring desktop in the thread, but I might as well post it because I'm that proud of it. I've switched to using Unity full time over XFCE and don't regret it. It looks amazing, modern, and still fits all my needs while feeling like a new experience.

    Although I do love how Unity colors itself based on your wallpaper, this color of blue is pure eye candy. Thumbnails are clickable. (Spoiler : Desktop of a huge Vocaloid fan.)

    Wow, that is seriously beautiful, and the wallpaper is juicy. I'd be pretty proud of that setup, personally.

    This is my current KDE setup. I'm trying something experimental, somewhat inspired by eOS.

    Basically, I liked the way eOS looked, but I took it a step further, I got rid of the application launcher and list on the task bar in favor of ALT+F2 (which has an advanced search feature by default) and ALT+TAB for window switching

    I have the following keyboard shortcuts:
    metab=chrome
    metaz=system settings
    metaf=file browser
    metak=kate
    metav=vlc
    ctrl+alt+s=shutdown now
    metat=terminal
    alt+ds = desktop settings (when desktop is shown)
    metad=show desktop

    This essentially removes 90% of my mouse usage.

    KDE is the best

    Feel for ya bro. No dual boot either? After my Family was FORCED to use Linux for a year, now they enjoy it greatly and want to keep it for their desktops. We did not have any windows install cds, to fix a broken windows OS. Sometimes it takes time. Sadly speed and stability of programs does not tend to sell people till you get them to use something for a while, than they switch back. (Skype Linux compared to Skype Windows, which on my machine kept on over using the CPU, so BSOD all around.)

    There are some amazing desktops on here.

    I guess they play lots of games and need Microsoft Office? Ouch, you could probably get a USB HDD for Ubuntu when you use the PC. It's hard to be comfortable using Windows for me now, I had to go fully Ubuntu on this second hard drive.

    And you're welcome, Artifical Intelligence. eOS is looking amazing.
