As the topic says, what desktop environment (Budgie / Gnome / Mate) you prefer and a explanation, why?
Hope for many answers
I have two Lenovo G series laptops that were my kids (they have essentially returned them to me as they can't game on them). One runs Budgie, the other is now running Gnome. I may transition the Gnome one to Mate just to see what it is like. I keep pulling the Budgie one when I need to do something. TBH, I don't think it matters. I like that they are all fast enough. I do not know if that is the limited selection of apps (so I can't really screw it up) or if it is a deliberate choice of apps by the devs.
I was a Ubuntu user. When Shuttleworth announced that they were shuttering development on Unity and moving to Gnome with their next LTS, I began to look else where. At one point I was also using Bodhi Linux, then the dev went and had a family, got involved in MtG, decided he needed to rewrite the desktop, and, well, Bodhi began to feel like it was more of a hobby. Not that I blame the guy.
Work is centered on CentOS, so I also have some pull in that direction if I am going to shift distros. However, I keep coming back to Solus/Budgie. I may go and do CentOS as my servers (Plex/media wiki/ntp/dns/dhcp/OwnCloud/SpiderOak/mail/calibre) and Solus as my desktops.
On my desktop I have simple needs, but the app that I have invested time into is Encryptr, and I have Faith that the Solus dev team will get it working.

Experience is what we get when we don't get what we want. And I have tons of experience...
