The Next Generation Desktop -:- Poll results

The Pool ended on January 31, 2016. Click to see the final results.

Check out, our latest poll...

        With the current year entry, we notice that they are in active development several desktop environments. For this survey, I've selected five desktop environments based on their state of development (active), and on the develop/support team behind of each desktop.

Brief introduction...

  1. Papyros Desktop
    This is the only desktop in the poll, that isn't available on a final/stable distro release (Papyros). Although, this is a strong candidate for the title, it gives the end user a new, modern, simplistic desktop interface.
  2. Budgie Desktop
    A modern, eye candy desktop that is making the first steps in the Linux World. This the face of the project team, Solus Project. Is also available on Manjaro, Fedora, openSuse and Ubuntu.
  3. Pantheon Desktop
    This is the key of success of elementaryOS. The look and feel, speed and an active team in solving problems, are strong factors of this successful desktop environment.
  4. Gnome Desktop ( GTK 3.xx )
    This is a desktop well known to all of us, and the oldest of the all five. Gnome, had a new approach a few years ago, despite the discontent of many users. But it's a fact, today is one of the most (if not the most) efficient, eye candy desktop environment available for Linux.
  5. Plasma 5 - KDE
    Loved by some, hated by others, Plasma 5 is a new chapter for the mature KDE desktop. Based on QT 5, it has now a modern, attractive look and features the best applications available for Linux. Behind this great desktop, there is a fantastic team of developers and contributors.
