I... I shouldn't have tried it. The thing is horrible.... their design decisions, I question them all... I like having a full desktop experience, which is why I tend to prefer KDE. I did use GNOME 2 because I thought it was just a great experience back then. But now? it's just in the gutters. People recommend XFCE but I feel like it's also a step back. I've been mixing openbox with KDE and seeing other windows manager such as i3 but I still can't see myself jumping ship yet. I haven't found a reason to do so, besides memory, which I have plenty to satisfy the system's needs plus it hasn't gotten in the way in terms of being responsive... so that's that. I've seen people all over windows managers. To be honest it feels like a very tight-knit group. I like it when someone promotes different window managers. To me they all do the same thing in the end, the only difference is the workflow of it I guess and different shortcuts. It's not that I want my desktop to be flashy, none of that. I can turn off the effects and be done with it. If KDE went to hell, like GNOME 3 did. I guess between XFCE and openbox/i3/bspwm, I would choose one from the latter.
