Favorite Desktop?

Since several years, i am on GNOME (3.+), and i wouldn't want to go away, as i got used to it and enjoy its usage. Also, it is getting better over the years.

But the current sparky distros don't seem to provide it out-of-the-box, which, in a way, seems to indicate, the devs probably dont have as strong  a hardware at their hands, as i do. :-(

I seriously doubt that hardware are the cause of not having a GNOME edition.

More probable cause is this: "SparkyLinux is a Debian-based Linux distribution which provides ready to use, out of the box operating system with a set of slightly customized lightweight desktops." From the about on the Sparky homepage.

Let's see if Pavroo chimes in. :)

Since I'm already here... roughly in order:

Trinity
KDE (after beating it with a stick until it agrees to look like itself again)
LXQt
JWM (for Puppy)
Cinnamon (in a pinch)

.
.

.
.

and way down below "rather stick forks in my eyes", Gnome3.

I know it's not popular, but I enjoy Gnome.

I'm weird (and I'm old too), so I remember Enlightenment from day 1, and am enjoying running it again.  Other than that I prefer Gnome or KDE.

I recently tried to install KDE and try it on my old machine, but .... nothing happened - from the word ... nothing at all - just the brake system and ... return to LXQt
