Window Managers Gtk+ has GNOME on the one hand, and Xfce on the other. Qt, on the other hand, only has KDE - there's no lightweight, less encompassing alternative if KDE doesn't float your boat, but you'd still want a Qt desktop. Luckily for you, there's now Razor-qt, a small, lightweight and simple Qt desktop environment.

Trinity Desktop

I have been using Trinity Desktop which is an excellent fork of KDE3.5 and I can tell you now I am extremely happy with its look and performance + I can run KDE4 apps on top of TDE. For instance, I installed Kolour Paint -- both the KDE3 and KDE4 versions. Another KDE4 app I installed was KGet. My favorite feature in TDE is everything but especially the quick launch applet on the very flexible panel. One thing I like about TDE is the whole integration. So far I have been able to drag any icon from any toolkit (tried Fox, GTK, DE4, XUL) into the quick launch. The whole desktop environment is very quick and responsive. The T menu has a search box and there are many other improvements...
