Try KDE on windows. The first app is a bit slow due to having to load all the KDE libs and to have to start dbus and such services. But after that, it's pretty good.

And on my system at home and on this laptop KDE is very fast. This laptop is a sony Vaio VGN-TZ31XN - 1.2 ghz dualcore proc, GMA950 grapics and 2 gb ram and 4200 rpm drive. In other words, nothing special.

Home system is dualcore 2 ghz Athlon 64 with 3 gb ram and Nvidia Geforce 6600 videocard. Again, far from special. Works perfectly fine, graphical effects are completely smooth. Ok, granted, since 2 days (X.org upgrade) X.org consistently uses 30-50% CPU. But this is arch linux, a new version will be here soon and I can handle this for a few days.
