Yep, playing with DEs was always a favorite hobby. Remember Enlightenment
? Beautiful WM, innovative...If they ever made that a bit more user friendly, I don't know. haven't tried it for some time now.
I've been pretty well hooked on Gnome, mainly due to KDE's bloat and the instability. But with today's hardware bloat isn't much of a factor for me any more...I may give it a try again.
I wonder how it would look with that native steam icon sitting on the desktop...
