I find it really disturbing to still bump into this kind of material. Gnome3, Unity, KDE?
I wish the community found its way to grow over those bloated monsters and stop trying to look like idiots picking between each one of them.
These DEs are nowhere around when it comes to efficiency and plain speed. I have a feeling that the only target audience of Gnome, Unity and KDE incarnations are old farts or linux noobs. First are forever stuck in their unidirectional linux world, second still have potential to understand all the fallacy behind the concept of effective linux DE, which is being shoved into our brains over and over again.
Why use these? Use simple, unobstructed and fast interfaces, that are easy to deploy. Whatever you do -- code, write, watch or listen, there are far better alternatives, that are more stable and resource efficient. Don't get hooked up on Gnome3, Unity, KDE train of delusion.
