I'd fall back to windows, like I did back when gentoo dropped kde3.5
support and kde4 didn't satisfy me.
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.
