Raspberry Pi OS is the default operating system we use in almost any project. It comes with the PiXeL desktop environment, which is a modified version of LXDE. But it’s not the only one you can use. I installed the most popular ones on my Raspberry Pi, and will share my impressions with you in this article.
Tested in this video: GNOME, KDE, MATE, Cinnamon, Pixel
I didn’t test XFCE or LXDE that are too close from Pixel to be interesting, except if performances are your only criteria.
