Troll thread? Maybe.
Personally I was a Windows user since Windows 95, and even worked in IT for years on M$oft universe (Windows Server, Citrix, Active Directory, SCCM, etc). When I gave a real try to Linux some months ago, I distro-hopped to Linux Mint and Ubuntu Budgie, where I felt like home until I found Manjaro Cinnamon.
I love Cinnamon, maybe because I was not too lost compared to Windows. Gnome on the other hand, erk… XFCE, Mate, feel too vintage, too XP/7. I did some customization and I have the Cinnamon desktop I like. But there is no new applet/desklet/extension very often, and while it rolls perfectly, I’d like more novelty. I messed up my disk some weeks ago (and the backups), I could recreate my custom environment by heart in one hour. There are customization but not so much at the end
I find KDE outstanding, fast and gorgeous, but as a recent Linux user, it scared me each time I tried to run it. Now that I have a good stable Cinnamon, I’m thirsty to tinker, to discover, to play Lego with a new environment. I finally jumped (baby jumps) and I’m delving into Plasma. KDE? Plasma?
I don’t use Linux for work, but for fun. I don’t need a stable and boring DE, I want a DE I’ll have fun playing with. And KDE is that for me.
