I was just going to have only Desktop Environments as options, but so many people only use Windows Managers, so I included them too.

I like KDE because of how configurable it is, but it's a little too heavy for my needs so I'm using Xfce currently. I used to be big on Fluxbox but it's way too time-consuming to change the look and feel of it.

I'm thinking of giving Ubuntu a try (I've used Slackware since ~2001) so if I do, I can try out GNOME.

At home I run Gentoo and OpenSUSE, while at school we use Debian and Fedora Core, so I have used KDE, GNOME, and Xfce the most.  Though, I have used IceWM, Window Maker, Fluxbox and ROX.  I prefer KDE over the other major DEs, and though I am not a huge fan of GNOME, since I am most familiar with it, it would have to be my second preferred one.

I mainly use Ubuntu, sometimes have to switch to windows to run logos as it is totally not compatible with Linux.

I think it has something to do with the Linux kernal.

No, it's the Graphical User Interface, which sits on top of a hardware abstraction level (usually X Windows), which sits on top of the kernel. I believe the Command Line Interface is the only one integrated into the Kernel itself.
