I mean, in case of gnome2 it was quite logical, kde3 was already outdated (by
linux standards) and kde4 was not polished enough. But now we have opposite

between providing classic desktop and "modern" design, former being hardly

KDE4 will be dropped soon, MATE is still a fork, XFCE probably does not have
enough human power to support it as enterprise clients would like, which
leaves only gnome3 as the desktop with enough human power and longer time
frame before gnome4 will arrive.

I asked about XFCE because I consider Gnome 3 a bad choice. And KDE4
even worse. But I hear they use gnome 2, and that absolutely matches
with what I said, if true. Conservative, stable, no niceties. Nothing to
