I wish KDE would *not* have the animations turned on by default. Way too much eye candy. It's just so...windows'ish.

I agree. KDE is getting to be overkill in the eye-Kandy department. It's sort of like Windows mating with Regedit and it gave birth to a strange child named KDE.

I am really starting to like XFCE - the recent edition is a nice balance between eye candy and performance. Plus, if you use the ROX-Filer it's a fun yet efficient overall desktop.

However, I've yet to find anything that tops OS X. Need to go geek - then you can hit the shell and CLI to your hearts content. Want ooish eye candy - you got it. You get the best of all worlds.

I disagree that KDE is overdoing it. I recently did an installation of Gentoo from scratch which took me forever to complete. Half of the satisfaction was knowing I could compile Linux on my own, but the other half was knowing that my desktop was more beautiful that that of my Windows and Mac using friends.

When my roommates who run OSX and Windows XP feel the need to stare at my desktop I think KDE is right on track.

Now that KDE is supporting transparency of windows I have even more faith that it will soon be the industry standard. Unless Jaguar goes open source of course.
