I was able to find it in System Settings using the search function in literally five seconds. More options make each option a little harder to find, but the ability to search in System Settings is very nice.

No, I'm using GNOME. I have tried KDE 5.12 recently in Manjaro, and KDE 5.8 some months back on Stretch. I was speaking from that experience.

I've tried several different desktops (GNOME, LXDE, KDE a,d XFCE). My personal preference is XFCE4. I also use lightdm. I have plenty of ram and system resources but just don't care for GNOME and KDE.
I'm not irrational, I'm just quantum probabilistic.

Xfce4

Back in the days (~2007), I was using hopping between Gnome2 and Xfce4, I settled on the later and never looked back.
The slow developpement is a feature. It is like taking the back seat and watching others projects try new things.
There is no rush porting Xfce4 to GTK+3 or Qt5.

This was tough for me.

If using a DE then its Xfce, however, I have used Fluxbox (twm and blackbox before that) for many years (back to Unix days), recently I started playing with i3wm and I dare say I am booting into i3 more then Fluxbox.....hell hath frozen over?

PS: I voted for WM.

XFCE here too.

I was using KDE for years. When KDE 4 came to Debian, load went to 100% when KDE was started. There was a lot whining also here, KDE users announced they will start using Gnome. Back then really there was only three alternatives, so I switched to XFCE then and never looked back.

XFCE4 Works well on this P4 and my P200MMX. Window Maker is my backup.

GNOME. In spite of many people telling me I shouldn't for one reason or another, I've hung onto it. It looks good, it's simple and it's very different to Windows. I think it's great.

I hate desktop environments, everything they do to "help" irritates me.
