None, running headless on a VPS (and Raspbian - which is Debian based on a headless Pi).

Back on spectrwm. After on a relatively time with herbstluftwm returning back on spectrwm. I have to affirm the latter is way faster WM and floats works good. I'm getting straight away at spectrwm.conf.

I use mate. I always used Gnome2 and when that got done away with I tried Gnome3 for some time with the classic look but decided that mate was for me. I don't chop and change.

i3 or xfce4, depending on my mood.

Sometimes I use gnome, too, but I have a love-hate relationship with it and detest the attitude of the developers, which tends to be very dismissive of the needs of anyone who doesn't fit their target demographic (very casual / unsophisticated users) and relies on difficult to maintain extensions that break with every release to be palatable or modify essential settings. Also, I'm afraid Gnome will prematurely drop support for X11 before Wayland is actually fully functional and useable in more than just casual/basic use cases. As things are going now, it will be a very long time before I can do everything on Wayland that I can do on X, and gnome's reputation is not so good when it comes to retaining functionality that users rely on. :?

^ ah, that's eloquent. well spoken.

anyhow, i'm glad to see the "simple X windowmanager" voters are in the lead!
XFCE as a clear second also isn't too shabby, esp. considering it's not debian's default desktop.

Trying out Sway in Debian stable, it's a Wayland port of i3:
