To many WINE errors? Try Bordeaux.
Today I decided to add some polling software to The Linux Box. With said software in place I have decided to ask a ridiculous
"What is your favorite DE/WM for Linux/UNIX?"
UPDATE: This poll has been completed. The results are viewable below.
Favorite DE/WM for Linux/UNIX
These results reflect 303 votes cast between May 9th and March 31st in 2010.
Please leave comments at the bottom of this page.

Currently I voted for GNOME, but my favorite desktop environment/window manager definitely changes from time to time. For awhile it was XFCE prior to it getting too bloated to really be minimalistic any more. I was a KDE fan during the 2.x days. I have used IceWM enough that I've written my own themes. I have used a command line interface a lot especially back-in-the-day when it was much easier to break X .
I have briefly used many of the DE/WM on the list. I've used Blackbox, CDE, Enlightenment, evilwm, FVWM, LXDE, NextSTEP, ROX Desktop, Project Looking Glass, and Windowmaker.
I should also take the time to try out Ion and ratpoison.
I think it would be cool to know what others have tried.

I put WindowMaker.
I didn't realise GEM had been ported to Linux. Where can I find it?

Oops, GEM shouldn't have made it onto the list. While GEM is still available as OpenGEM, it only runs on DOS-like environments. I'll remove it from the poll.
