I just registered here. After testing Linux Mint 16 Cinnamon, I switched to KDE. I like both of them, but ultimately felt that KDE is better suited to my needs. In any case, they're great work. I'm very happy to be using Linux and hopefully will continue to do so for many years to come.
Speaking of years... I'm slightly ahead of time here, but I'd also like to take this opportunity and wish everyone a happy upcoming New Year!
