    I can't choose anymore. There are so much good DE's nowadays! Gnome 3.32 is finaly usable thanks to Canonicals performance improvements. MATE is full of features, fully customizable, good looking and has HUD. KDE is extremely smooth and customizable.

      Yeah. No matter your preference or how you want to get your work done, there's probably an environment that suites your needs. I've had a blast just trying stuff out lately. So many different distributions and desktops these days...both amazing and daunting...

      Gnome 2 was my very first Linux desktop (on Debain) back around 2002 or so. It's great that it's still alive, modern, and awesome in MATE.

        Just to ensure credit goes where due, Georges Stavracas (aka feaneron) from Endless also did quite a few performance improvements, the more stable FPS and faster icon grid drawing (e.g. in the apps list) was from one of several large refactorings by him: https://feaneron.com/2019/01/31/gnom...aster-cleaner/

        He also contributed to fixing the memory issue from the Shell: https://feaneron.com/2018/04/20/the-...l-memory-leak/

          As long as you don't mind using a DE that hasn't even had a bugfix update in over 4 years.

            In fact, the choises are only two for me: Xfce, Lxqt. I abandoned almost every gtk3 applications, Firefox and Libreoffice have no alternatives, because the gtk3 libs are dangerous. You can guess which DE I've been using.

                Any idea why it is so? Is the code base a mess or just few developers and too little time?

                  From what I've gathered, It's the developers and time part.

                    FWIW Mate has very few developers as well, but it seems at least one of them knows how to be a release manager.

                    The too few developers issue seems to affect all DEs except Gnome and KDE.
