Then I suggest you use the desktop environments that you mentioned, as
they are apparently a better fit for your needs.  Open source is all about
choice--that not only includes user choice in software selection, but also
developer choice whereby hackers can improve software in ways that they
need for their particular application(s).

Oh, and enough with the Windows bashing already. :-)  Like any other
system (including various Linux DEs and OS X), Windows has its strengths
and its flaws.  There is no reason we need to succumb to NIH syndrome and
ignore good ideas from other systems.
