I agree there are too many options, but also too many glitches as well. I have mostly jumped between KDE/XFCE/Gnome.
I used to always go back to XFCE then that had an HDMI bug so that put me off, then with the Nvidia tearing etc…but you soon get used to adding lines here, using Compton.
KDE, well I really cannot understand how anyone can like it, I did have a brief spell as I liked all the glassy look, but its just too clunky for me.
Gnome, well I always seem to come back to this now, I like the simple top bar transparent with the time and weather, Plank at the bottom and no graphical glitches, but then you find you have the wrong amount of extensions, and they start playing up. and I start to head back to WIndows 10.
Windows 10, wow great to have you back, latest drivers, no issues with apps, things just work, then a few weeks down the line, mmm this is slowing down, I am getting spied on, you restart my computer when you want, tin foil hats…
Ah Gnome, great to have you back, and repeat :)
