unity and gnome have been annoying. i think i'd stick with kde for now until all these interface developers stop thinking that tablet interfaces suck on desktops.
I wished I could like KDE but I just can't stand it. I do like some of the apps, it's just the desktop is too complicated. It's not that I can't tweak it, because I do know how, I just prefer something simpler. To me the best desktop right now is Cinnamon. It does have some bugs still because it is a new project but it does everything I need. I'm looking forward to their 2.0 release where they finally become independent from Gnome.
My next best fav is XFCE.
