Well, if you refer to the next release, I would like to see KDE and XFCE. But actually I got the default GNOME DE and installed KDE 4. I like plasma becouse is very friendly and easy to use.

Mate is good enough.

Mate is ugly, has a poor gtk3 support, and it's ugly. Also, setting up universal access seems complicated.

Not good enough for a flag DE.

Also : gnome-classic is included.

It has a GTK3 port in progress.

Still only 1 point out of 3, and without guarantee that it will be ready on time, if at all.

Mate would be bad publicity compared to gnome-shell. It looks familiar only to those who are used to it.
But The forum/website is not too good looking/functional either. For PR, this matters. And a modern-looking DE would be one hell of an improvement.

For me personally, it doesn't: I set my Trisquel myself, and I can quickly modify a standard Trisquel to a gnome-shell or whatever for someone else. I could (and will) even script that.

Also, there's gnome-classic mode in gnome-shell, so you can even keep your old workflow. No reason to bother with Mate.

I prefer XFCE4 + Compton. Or XFCE + Compiz.

Hello, I like gnome fallback or mate with compiz and plank. It's lite, clean and customizable. (paper icon theme and personal wallpaper)

I really like GNOME Fallback however I understand the complains. But one can do something about it. Let me explain:

GNOME Fallback (as in Trisquel 7) Pros:
+ Similar layout to Windows, easy to switch / get used to
+ doesn't depend on hardware-accelerated graphics (think about libreboot users)
+ supports access for handicapped people
+ stable, around for a long time
+ since it's GNOME (popular) many dependencies for other programs are already included

GNOME Fallback (as in Trisquel 7) Cons:
- No searchable menus / app search
- No switchables users by default
- (there are probably more)

So I suggest sticking with GNOME Fallback but also including software like Cardapio (better integrated, without the internet-search stuff included for privacy, probably needs some work) for the menu and replacing the default menu, adding at least 2 seats in /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf by default, so ctrl+alt+f8 works and 2 users / accounts can be logged in at the same time. Some minor changes (like making Windows-button open the menu by default) would also make an easier experience.

I think with just a bit of work, GNOME Fallback could be the perfect balance between all requirements. As it is now, it's a little bit too dusty.

> Similar layout to Windows, easy to switch / get used to

This is entirely customized for Trisquel, so I don't think this should be considered as a "pro" for Flashback. Any desktop environment can be modified to look like Windows (even GNOME Shell, via extensions).

> doesn't depend on hardware-accelerated graphics (think about libreboot users)

I'd like to note that GNOME Shell doesn't, either. It actually runs surprisingly well without it. I don't know about Cinnamon or KDE or Unity, though. Every other one I can think of does not require any hardware acceleration.

> supports access for handicapped people

An advantage not shared by all DEs, but it is shared by GNOME Shell and MATE.

> since it's GNOME (popular) many dependencies for other programs are already included

I don't know whether or not this is technically true by some sort of accident, but I doubt it's true in any special way for GNOME, at least. In any case, it's kind of irrelevant since the base system can include additional packages.

> No switchables users by default

Not true. You can create new accounts. Ubiquity just doesn't help you with this when you install the system.

Unity? I like this interface. But it has privacy issues. I need to get source code and remove this. Then I can use this.
And second bug: the Unity have button with Ubuntu logo, I right?

No, it must have a Trisquel logo.
