Honestly they all suck.
gnome = slow, unintuitive, limiting by design, churning out halfbaked "new and better apps", attempting to deprecate existing functionality with their own bullshit, etc etc. attempts to create the one "correct" solution and that's what you get whether it's right or not.
kde = buggy (yes it's still buggy), weird, various incompatibilities with gtk that simply can not be resolved, crowded, piles of options but none of them quite do what you wanted. Attempts to offer many solutions but none of them are right.
xfce = old, underpowered, unable to keep up with the evolving linux desktop ecosystem. releases once every 5? years. had a good run, time to let it go.

lxde = deprecated in favor of lxqt

lxqt = show me one person who actually uses lxqt

unity = began as a cobbled together gnome/compiz-session, vocally hated on for years, eventually got pretty good just in time for ubuntu to drop it (huh huh you can still use it tho, don't worry if it's dead((see xfce)))
mate = ugly green everywhere, may or may not work with laptop volume and brightness, nothing get excited about (see xfce)

cinnamon = offshoot of gnome 3, will eventually get trapped unable to keep up with tracking a moving target that couldn't care less about it

budgie = I don't know what Budgie is or does, sorry

elementary = see budgie

pantheon, lumina, etc, etc..

Unfortunately windows and macos both also blow, for other and for some of the same reasons.

It's obviously CDE, the comfiest eyesore on the planet. This is your daily reminder that CDE is open source now and you can easily compile and run it yourself on nearly an UNIX-like OS, including NetBSD and others.

Debian users can just add the Sparky Linux testing repo and get access to a pre-compiled package that'll set it all up automatically. It even comes with dtlogin, a login manager. Easiest way to set up dtlogin on Debian based Linux is to add "/usr/dt/bin/dtlogin" on a new line in /etc/rc.local and then uninstall the old login manager.

I actually prefer Pantheon over GNOME. It's UI is more consistent and the app menu takes a small space in the corner instead of the full window like in GNOME and macOS. The downside is that Pantheon has little to no customization, and that could be a turn off for users who like to customize every bit of their OS.
>>65313250
Try Linux Mint. It's designed to be easy to use for new Linux users. It includes codecs and a lot of software pre-installed so people doesn't have to bother installing it.
elementaryOS is another good alternative. It looks really good by default and its easier for new users to get used to. elementary OS doesn't as much programs installed as Linux Mint, but you can install them from the app center.
Both elementary OS and Linux Mint are based on Ubuntu LTS.
tl; dr: Try both OS and see which one your friend prefers the most.

I installed LM in my parents' old HP laptop after a Win8.1 update fucked the whole OS and made everything unusable because even opening minesweeper caused the CPU to overheat and the fans to run at max speed. After installing LM the overheating problem disappeared.
They only needed a machine with a browser and an office suite, so I replaced LibreOffice with MS Office through WINE so they wouldn't have problems opening .docx and similar documents.

Sadly, mate. I say 'sadly' because it's literally a life-support version of gnome2, and has no choice but to eventually go gtk3 permanently (at which point it will also become completely unusable since gtk3 is a buggy piece of absolute garbage where tabs are known to randomly stop being clickable on most but not all hardware).

Enlightenment is 100% rice, 0% usability. Its customization amounts to what color gaudy gradients you want to burn your eyes, and you never get the option to turn off said gradient, despite how much of a nuisance it is when trying to read text and your background is a top-bottom uneven FUCKING GRADIENT WHAT THE FUCK WERE THEY THINKING.
Everything is super-animooted, with no way to turn it off, which makes operations slow as is, and even worse with an underpowered system.
All-the-while it doesn't actually provide the basic features or programs you'd expect it to have. It's basically like a gaudy gold-coated, diamond-encrusted 20 year old rustbucket shitmobile: doesn't go anywhere, looks like crap, even the seats are rotting, but hey, it shines!

Definitely not Plasma 5 and KDE. I love KDE, but it's terrible. Bugs, freezes, tearing... In my case it is freezes that make me force reboot. If an OS do that to you, I don't think it's worthy to be called a OS. It's more like an experimental toy. I have not much experience with Gnome or the other DE. I would definitly think Gnome has better stabillity, reliable and so on. But then again, GNU is GNU.

unity-tweak-tool (most feature not working or breaking unity) , gnome-tweak-tool (hanged unity until 16.04 when you tried changing the font), compizconfig-settings-manager (touching it was plain suicide before 14.04), and the ubuntu system settings.

I can agree that the layout was good, but thats it, not even the ambiance/radiance thems are good because they hinder subpixel rendering contrast, causing the reds to stand out, especially the magenta background in the terminal.

That's the most retarded methodology you could have possibly used. At the minimum you should have done sentence-wise sentiment analysis. Retard. People are bitching on gnome at basically every single mention. Sentiments on KDE are mixed, leaning positive. Sentiments on XFCE and MATE are very positive, so are i3.

once you get past the initial learning curve and get your config the way you like it, it is extremely productive.

>> No.65325708

>>65325498
It's lacking a couple critical features to make it actually productive rather than memeproductive, but it's by far the best of the tiling wm's:
- minimizing programs (this allows efficient movement between programs as they become more or less relevant based on activity, in particular direct selection to bring back a task into focus as part of a tiling layout, and the ability to focus on a single or a couple windows without losing the entire layout).
- non-shit tooltip/dialog handling and detection (otherwise you too often have to manually float them)
- non-shit floating mode (for aforementioned tooltips/dialogs, otherwise they appear in last-spawned-on-top order regardless of intent)

In the end it's significantly less efficient for some specific but very common usage patterns, while being more efficient for most slightly common to slightly uncommon tasks. I find that overall it's not worth it because of that.
