Thank you all that voted in the poll, left comments here or on the blog, or participated in the discussions about your favorite desktop environments! As shared in May last year, the developers have listened to your opinion, and acknowledged at the time the fact that the most popular environments within our community were Cinnamon, MATE, Xfce and KDE. Going forward, they shared that they would focus primarily on these desktops. Of which Linux Mint 14 was the first proof, with the KDE and Xfce versions being released much earlier than was previously possible.
The poll had come to an end earlier already, and I think it's time now to close this topic also. It is good to see acknowledged now, even more strongly than in May last year, that these four desktop environments are still the favorite within our community. Your opinions continue to matter to the team, and your feedback on the forums, on the blog, and on the community site are all welcomed and listened to!
Perhaps another poll will be done in due time, but for now we can look forward to the upcoming LMDE ISO refresh and to Linux Mint 15 Olivia.
