    If you plan another comparison in future could you benchmark also LXQT? I also heard that will be in Debian repostiory before freeze of Jessie.

    gnome's performance is pretty impressive for what it is...

    I am surprised by LXDE being slower than XFCE in a lot of tests.

    Unity should have been there.

    Used to be ugly back in Fedora Core 1 and very unstable, crashes a couple of times everyday back then.

    Since 4.10 I am more than happy to use it as my main desktop. It is very stable on Arch Linux and even Kubuntu (not sure why they call it Kubuntu, I would still say it is Ubuntu + KDE).

    your right, xorg was customized... interesting though, I never new about this problem changed it because of an unrelated problem with my plasma screen.

    Yes, ponderating the average. So users can see what is the result which offers the best solution.

    These results track with my own

    Cinnamon here gace good results in almost all tests except rendering GTK widgets. I cannot even measure a framerate difference in a light or a heavy game between Cinnamon and IceWM. On the other hand, the GTK widget test shows the responsiveness problem Cinnamon and the older gnome-shell on which it is based are known for. Not a problem on my big machines, they respond just fine with Cinnamon and in fact it's my favorite DE. The netbook, however, shows faster battery consumption using it and responsiveness definately takes a hit. MATE over compiz ran better but still used more battery, so that machine stays on IceWM for maximum battery life and the ability to play 720P video on an Intel Atom Pine Trail single-core.

    KDE is as ugly as you configure it, nothing more, nothing less.
    and have to many bugs
    Works fine on Slackware. Maybe it is your distro that is buggy, not KDE?

    kde?

    GNOME 3 (gnome-shell) is broken, as a long time GNOME user (since 2001) I was totally pissed off when they decided to remove gnome fallback mode (which works with Compiz). GNOME 3 challenges the habit of a 10+ years user, just like Windows 8.

    I am now more than happy to use KDE 4.13 on Arch, keep rolling into future Plasma Next :_D BTW: I was once pissed off by KDE when it was around 3.5, so unstable.

    KDE Plasma Next has full hardware acceleration and should be faster. When running games full screen, better to start it from a light weight WM.

    You can use a different compositor with OpenGL support. I have used compton, gala and compiz with Xfce and they truly get rid of tearing. But of course they should implement an OpenGL compositor, or at least adapt one of these officially.
