Desktop Enviroment

I have always had a love-hate relationship with these desktop environments. Sometimes I think they are the devil who makes your life more miserable(like messing with your locale, enviroment variables, etc…), but they are such eye candies and save you from endless configuration loop. So I draw a conclusion of what kind of people need DE. If you fall into one of these categories:

First time Linux user

Want to get the job done

Not into rising a.k.a configuraions

Nah I just love DEs

then it's recommended you use a DE. I am not going to list any DE here because you can find tons of recommendation out there online.
