In our case, we are entirely a VDI shop and the advanced graphics of
Gnome3 and KDE4 present a problem.  That is beside the learning curve
and the tendency in KDE4 to put new ideas ahead of needed functionality.

We would probably look at XFCE although LXDE would be a candidate. The
latter seems more difficult for end users to customize.

TDE is by far and away the best balance we have found for our specific
needs.  It offers the tight integration and customization of KDE without
the KDE4 problems.  XFCE and LXDE are still a bit too light for our
needs.  Thanks - John
