Many years ago I used to use KDE (we talking about KDE3x days) then when KDE 4 came out (oh god ) I moved onto Gnome 2. Oh what lovely years and fond memories I had with it.
Then I went to Gnome 3 and almost through up as it lacked a lot of features. Recently I moved onto MATE and quite liked it. However in many ways I started to find it old and clashed with Compiz quite badly.
So I decided what the hell and tried Gnome 3.4 and I must admit, I am quite impressed with it!
