LOL! Well in Mepis I have KDE, Xfce, and E16. In Mint and Ubuntu I currently only have GNOME. In Debian Etch I have KDE, GNOME, Xfce, and E16.

I can't even decide which I like best. I started out using KDE, wasn't comfortable with GNOME, then tried Fluxbox and Xfce and Openbox, and after playing around with those I started liking GNOME.

I think that any of them is fine once you use it long enough, you get used to it and start getting a feel for what you can do with it. But one thing, I always use a few KDE apps no matter what -- in particular, Konqueror (and/or Krusader) and Amarok.

At this point, whenever anyone says "I don't like GNOME" or "I don't like KDE," I kinda chuckle. I think they're both great.
