Or if I were to stay on linux, I'd use it on win host in vm, using it only from CLI. KDE4 is a joke on vm (tried that now), I don't like approach the kde4 devs have to users (seen that some time ago on the forums), and simply, I don't like the whole plasma system. Gnome3 is a no for me (I tried that 2 days ago) even if I like some of it's features (actually one, i don't know how it's called, i'll call it window overwiew, where all of you windows are scaled [thumbnailed?] and displayed in a way that you view them all. i know it was ages ago in OsX, but it's still nice. maybe it could be ported to trinity as an optional feature?) because I find it very slow. Actually It needed something like 30secs to display the application menu on my system (i3@..., 4GB RAM, Mobility Radeon HD 4500/5100 Series). LXDE, XFCE/ anything else - I found those incomplete for my uses.
