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.

I wish there was something like "KDE-Lite" i.e. KDE without all K-apps.

There is, and it's called indeed KDE Light. It only comes with one distro (for now at least), PocketLinux, but it's definitely worth to try it out IMHO. :-)

And some screenshots (the last one is the most current version):
