KDE According to these blog posts from SUSE/Novell KDE developers that include bootcharts showing KDE startup, recent performance improvements in fontconfig and KDE/Qt have a noticeable effect on startup times. KDE can even match Xfce startup time (both 5 seconds on a 900MHz laptop) when some KDE features are turned off to match Xfce more closely in terms of functionality.

For example, if I want kmix or kpdf, I have to install kdemultimedia or kdegraphics

Dunno what distro you're using, but in Debian and presumably debian derivatives, you can install every application separately. kdemultimedia and kdegraphics are just convenience packages that depend on all the others, but you dont have to install them.
