Your Favorite Desktop Environment?
« on: March 24, 2017, 12:12:25 pm »
Hey, peeps!

I've been having fun with Sparky for the last several days and been giving the desktop envs. a drive. I'm currently using CDE since it's my favorite. Cinnamon and Mate have become too mainstream lately, lol.  :P

What do you currently use?

Personally, I don't need much from my desktop. No fireworks, no 3D effects, to heavy environments.
It has to work on my old and new machines, so... Openbox.
Nothing is easy as it looks.

Openbox here too. Simple and elegant, without glitter. ;)

JWM - Use it with Debian and used it with Puppy and so far like the Sparky implementation. :)

Comon Desktop Environment.

CDE - it's the primary reason I'm using SparkyLinux!
It is the only distribution that has an official CDE installation. The installation went seamingless through APtus. And it's working for me like a charm.

You made me really happy folks!  :)

Sparky x64 MATE

Started with openSUSE way back in 2006 and loathed KDE.  Looked around and found LinuxMint with Gnome2.  When that was abandoned found MATE, which has improved enormously since its initial release.  Tried Cinnamon, Fluxbox, OpenBox, and JWM.  They each have their advantages but overall MATE is still my favourite.  Hadn't heard of CDE, so will have a look at it in a few moments.
Dogs laugh, but they laugh with their tails.

Those of you using CDE, why do you like it?  What is the file-manager like?  Advantages, say relative to pcmanfm?

I worked with SGI and SUN machines in the 90ies - so there is much nostalgia here :-)
