kde is an abomination of its own. I typically put xfce on laptops. people generally seem to get that decently well.

It's the most featureful unified FOSS environment, by far.
XFCE is better than gnome or cinnamon/mate, but its featureset leaves power users wanting.
Kwin is highly powerful, customisable and resource efficient, akonadi and nepomuk integrate well with a large variety of resources for PIM, etc.

KDE 4.0 was bad, but it's at 4.11 now, and it's incredible just how far it's come. Nothing else has everything it does, and it can still run on minimal resources with efficiency. It's not using much more RAM or HDD on arch than did AwesomeWM for me.
