I disagree. Bloat is bloat. I'm using ion3 on my laptop and it's
blazingly fast. I installed KDE on my wife's computer and while it's not
a dog it is NOT blazingly fast.

OTOH, my wife's only experience was with Windows and she never had any
trouble finding her way around in KDE (which is why I installed it for
her). If you're replacing WinXP and you want people up to speed fairly
quickly then I think KDE is a pretty good choice.
