Well, I've never been a fan of GNOME and never liked KDE. To me, KDE looks way too cluttered. GNOME seems more elegant, simpler, but because it's a GNU thing which tries to call Linux stupid GNU/Linux, I don't really like it.
So, my favorite desktop environment is Xfce. It is very very simple, nice and clean, and generally faster. You especially notice faster boot speeds with Xfce.
Now, let's think about it logically, what parts of a desktop environment matter to people most: naming and logo. Let's see, KDE: what kind of a name is that? K Desktop Enviroment? That doesn't make any sense whatsoever! The dragon logo although, is pretty nice.
Next up, GNOME. Even better. What comes to mind when you say "gnome" (I know it's not pronounced that way)?
I imagine a fat, little unfriendly (and stinky too) gnome. And who want a footprint for a mascot? That's ridiculous.
And finally, Xfce. Well, of course as soon as you read the name, "XForms Common Environment" pops to mind. That little mouse signifies speed since mice are very good at running. But wait, there is more. Mice are very quiet, so that guarantees that your computer will run smoothly and quietly with this amazing piece of software.
This post is a big fat joke, please don't flame.
