Well, hi everyone! Finally registered to cast my vote!
My vote has been for Cinnamon & Mate. I've been a Linux user for quite a few years, going full Linux at around Ubuntu 6.06. I've seen a lot of changes, DE and distros since then, passing by Gnome2, KDE3, Unity, Gnome3, KDE4, Fluxbox, XFCE Mate, Cinnamon... But like many, since the "fall" of Gnome 2, I never really felt at home with nothing. I spent some months using XFCE, always doing workarounds due to the few available options and features. Since my change to Mint, I've given a run at Cinnamon (my favorite future DE), but unfortunately it still feels a little "stiff", even though it made some really nice progress since the start. For now, I use Mate in my computers and my families, since Cinnamon still gives me weird lags in some computers.
Thank you all!

This is not about DE, but I feel that I must say this: When will Mint go Debian all the way? We're all waiting for that!
