As someone who's been running and testing Linux desktops almost from day one, I think I know a
thing or two about the top Linux desktops.So here, from bottom to top, is a gallery of my current favorites.
Number 5: SystemRescueCD
SystemRescueCD isn't a Linux desktop you'd use every day, but it's essential to anyone who's ever had to fix a misbehaving desktop of any sort.
It's back to the past with SystemRescueCD's no frills boot-up . It's goal is to get you to the tools you need to fix your PC as fast as possible.

Once you're in SystemRescueCD though, you don't have to stick with a character-line interface. You can start up an Xfce lightweight X Window desktop with the
command “startx” from a command line.
From SystemRescueCD's you can run tools like the GParted disk partition editor - perfect for bring dead hard drives back to life.
