The more recent versions of gnome, gnome 3 and actually I have not seen the gnome ultra, but I don't like the gnome 3 much, the gnome classic, is what I have on my debian wheezy , ,.. now that I have it on MX-14, well I was getting used to the XFCE 4 , and now I am not so sure I like gnome classic better,...both have features I like, , ..I am not very fond of ICONS, when they are little pitchures, that I have no clue as to what they mean, to me those are like egyption hyrogliphs (sorry about the spelling) I prefer text, IE: Applications, accesaries, file mangager,...etc.
you might be better off installing MATE desktop
That would interesting to try it, actually I have never used it.
If I remember correctly, but please correct me, isn't both KDE and LXDE what they call "plasma" screens, like what is used in Linux Mint, if so, I really don't like it much, seems to hurt my eyes, this is not say they are "bad", but not to my taste. thanks all
