    Years later the community is at this point, but it is GNOME, not KDE, with desktops like:Ubuntu Shell, Endless Shell, PHOSH, and now COSMIC that are extensions, where every single one of them also contributes to GNOME upstream. It's nice to see the community finally comming together, while still keep an own identity.
    With KDE you have alternatives based on their foundation too, like LiquidShell for example, which is basically Plasma 5 Lite. And Deepin also uses some KDE libraries. But yeah, most of the big names use GNOME.

      GNOME has never visually pleased me, feels outdated to me, nor worked right for me out-of-the-box (manual tweaking was definitely needed!). I've never felt like I could "get the job done" with GNOME either. The closest to all of that IMHO is Deepin, which I'm happily using partly since 15.10 and full-time since 20.0. Looks visually pleasing, modern, is coherent, simple, stays out of the way and has sane defaults OOTB.

        Whatever floats your boat. Like I said. Different people, different needs.

          I'm guessing Windows users fall into three groups.

          Those who dislike the Metro/flat scheme and the UI that came with it (Windows 8+) - may prefer Budgie

          Those who like the Metro/flat scheme and the UI that came with it - may like COSMIC (or Gnome itself)

          Those who like the art style but not the functionality, or the other way around - may be out of luck?

          I have long wondered how the numbers fall out in that breakdown. Many people claim a majority for whatever style they want to pursue, but I haven't seen any hard figures.

              Windows user may like KDE*
              Mac User may like Gnome

              The majority of Windows user is still like: .."where is my start icon and menu in the left lower corner!?!"
