This is fucking comfy, I don't get all the hate
GNOME3 is literally pseudo-tablet ui and the joke is that it's unusable on actual tablets
KDE 5 is muh minimalism plus the old bloat from 4
TDE is KDE 3.5 with some updates
LXDE just werks but can't do much
Why do people say Gnome 3 fits better on tablets? Not questioning this point itself but it works pretty well as a desktop interface after some plugins. Using it with a dock and having the Applications Menu extension is really convenient. Its like having icons for the programs you use the most on your Desktop but without the visual pollution that comes with it.
My only complainants with Gnome 3 are that the default installation is bloated and looks horrible. KDE seems really way ahead in terms of out-of-the-box aesthetics.
I don't mind Gnome as much anymore but it still gets annoying when some update will try and force a new workflow on you for no reason.
Been trying Ubuntu again and I've still had a few issues, but that's just anecdotal.

From a visual design standpoint perhaps, but that's largely a side effect of minimalism being in and Gnome moving towards design elements that help it with Wayland like client side decorations.
Gnome 3 is as you say basically unusable on a tablet because its so strongly keyboard driven.
