    I always liked gnome as it was reasonably lightweight and I could change it a lot.

    The second I saw gnome3 I moved to XFCE, then got the custimisation bug and moved to openbox.

    I really can't stand the look of Unity or gnome shell. Look too much like ubuntu netbook edition to me.

      Are they going this way with the interfaces to maybe eventually goto tablet form ?

        Thats why Windows XP worked in my opinion.

          tbh I always thought of XP as Win2k's fat and ugly step-sister. But that's just personal preference.

          I've also never liked GNOME even in the early 1.x days. But again, personal preference. However in that instance I could at least relate to why others did like it

            oooh, i've never managed to keep a linux OS very long - probably because i miss some of the programs on Windows too much haha.
            Anyway, Now we've got NetBook, i'm giving Fedora 15 a go on it... downloading at the moment
