    As I'm still hopping around for DEs (currently using MATE), I'm curious to see what you have used before. Here is an example of my WM/DEs that I have used:

    Xfce
    KDE Plasma 5
    Openbox
    LXDE
    Cinnamon
    MATE
    Unity
    GNOME 3
    Awesome
    Budgie
    i3
    JWM

    In order of use:

    KDE -> I did not like it. It was in school and it sucked. Might be different now. It was on Mandriva.
    Cinnamon -> First time I used Mint. I loved it! I'm still using it today on my Thinkpad.
    Budgie -> I first used it when I was testing Solus on my laptop and some other broken distros (sadly, none worked properly), and I did like it, very clean and simple interface. If it wasn't for hardware incompatibility, I would have stuck with it.
    Gnome -> I used this a bit with Chapeau (derivated from Fedora) and it was alright, but confusing at first. Again, just like Solus, I couldn't have anything working properly, and this one only worked at a 800x600 screen resolution.

    At the end, I reverted to Windows 10 on my gaming laptop, and kept Linux Mint on my Thinkpad. Best of both worlds, in my opinion.

    I'm only comfortable with Unity. I've tried GNOME, KDE, i3-gaps, etc., but I always came back to Unity. Too bad the Canonical wankers are discontinuing it
