I must admit, I used to really really always go with KDE desktops, but Gnome 2.0 is a real step up. I really like Ubuntu under Gnome. Much moreso than I did before. It also doesn't feel totally like it's trying to be Windows any more, (more like it's trying to be MacOS ;P), which I quite like. These Desktops need to find something to set them apart a little, whilst still being very usable.
Dr Possible: Core 2 Duo E6400 on Gigabyte GA-965P-DS4. Galaxy GeForce 7600GT. 2GB Corsair XMS 2 DDR2-6400 RAM (CL5). ATi Theatre 550 Pro. Windows XP MCE. All stored in Piano black Antec Sonata II, with a broken door.

Mobile: ASUS M2400N, Pentium M 1.5 GHz. 512 MB DDR RAM. Intel EXTREME graphics. Windows XP SP 2 / Ubuntu 5.10.

Ridiculous DOES not have an 'e' in it. It comes from "ridicule" and has less than nothing to do with the colour red.
