I'm not sure anyone could actually 'like' KDE - IMHO you admire it as the nearest Linux is at present to a halfway-competently integrated desktop environment - a quasi-Windows of the era around W98 . . . but in an ideal world the way to go is something determinedly minimal [like, say, fluxbox], yet with enough underlying logic to give a sufficient & empathic depth of layering between the user & all possible function . . . that way we *might* one distant day get an environment as good as OS X

I find doing root commands very easy to do with SuperUser File Manager - I have not found something like that in the other desktop managers. I don't mind commandline, but editing large text files on the commandline is no fun.
- it may be a bit olde-worlde; but FWIW a decade or so ago I got into the habit of using Midnight Commander [mc] for these tasks - a decent file manager as close as it gets to the command-line.
