Inquiring minds wanted to know, so we asked. When choosing what to run on a machine -- we're talking computing machines running GNU/Linux here -- what's more important, the choice of distro or which desktop environment to run? We began asking the question among ourselves several weeks back when we were running our "best distro" poll and a few commenters observed that the desktop might be a more important metric for most users, since it's the desktop that supplies the interface with which the user interacts. Good point, we thought.
