comment Gnome, KDE, XFCE… which is most simple and customizable?
Very helpful. Can one switch easily between desktop environments if one wants to test them out, or am I basically married to the one I install with the initial Fedora install. -- Is Linux modular like, say, the Chrome browser, where you can add and remove extensions as you see fit? -- Sawfish and Awesome look like what I'm lookng for; but clearly I'm a bit intimidated being a newb and would rather start with the default Gnome GUI before switching fully.

comment Gnome, KDE, XFCE… which is most simple and customizable?
The only two GUI features I can't live without is the OS X-style ability to switch and manage windows using simple keyboard shortcuts, and a pasteboard (plaintext copy history). I feel like a slug without those two. -- And by customizable, does that mean I can have a lean KDE setup without any bloat? As long as I can opt out of features that will slow down performance or take up screen real estate, I'm good. And yeah, it's hard to really understand the differences when I read about them.
