Three reasons to/not to use…

These articles I found on the Internet prove very useful in making a choice of Desktop Manager for old but especially new GNU/Linux users. I have used GNOME and KDE before, and not only that(I’ve used Window Managers like Openbox, Fluxbox, TWM and Enlightenment DR16 which is my favorite and the one I plan to use in DR17 and I still want to test FVWM and others), and I do find GNOME to be slow and very bloated compared to KDE. What makes it stand up more is that GNOME is much more productive out-of-a-box and it is easier to set up the way you like it and that’s why it still remains the default Dekstop Environment for most GNU/Linux distributions. But if you’re like me and prefer a lighter environment you will probably choose a stand-alone Window Manager or a lightweight Desktop Manager like Xfce. With Enlightenment it is different, it is a Desktop Shell, meaning it provides a Window Manager and icons on your desktop, nothing more.
