Though you do suffer the overhead of having to load the kde libs, which
can slow things down for a while after logging in; it's very noticeable
on a laptop.
XFCE is quite gnome like, so gnome is also an option; at least it doesn't
have the plasmoids overhead. The lack of control in gnome is a pain, but
as long as I have my kde apps, then it's bearable.
