Desktop Environment Contest from Linux notes from DarkDuck

There were quite a few contests on this blog already.

I bet you liked all of them. Do you want another contest? I have one for you!

This time round, you will need to use your writing skills again. But this contest will not be driven by a specific product. Neither will it be about Linux in general. It will be something in the middle.

Each of us, or at least many of us are Linux users. We have our personal preferences about the Desktop environment: KDE4, KDE3, Trinity, GNOME 2, GNOME 3, Zorin, Cinnamon, Mate, Unity, Xfce, LXDE, E17 and so on.

Please write an article about your favourite (or non-favourite) Desktop Environment. Something with a title and/or contents:
  • I like <...> because...
  • My favourite DE is...
  • How to <...> in <...> Desktop Environment
  • ...
  • or even
  • I hate <...> Desktop Environment, because...
Sounds interesting! It does, doesn't it?

What's the prize?

The organizer (DarkDuck) will select three winners, who will get:

  1. First prize is an Amazon.com voucher for amount just under 15 USD.
  2. Second prize is a CD or DVD with a Linux distribution of your choice from Buy Linux CDs
  3. Third prize is a CD or DVD with a Linux distribution of DarkDuck's choice from Buy Linux CDs.

Where to send your works?

Please e-mail them to linuxblog-contest@darkduck.com.

When to send?
