Running KDE because i like the thorough, centralised control centre, the custamisabilty, and the pretty colours. The panel is turned off and so is the desktop. Startup and background processes are almost completely culled (no need for all that indexing, etc.), and Openbox is running as the WM. Oh, and that horrendous icon theme has been nuked! In a way, you could almost say i am not really running KDE, merely taking advantage of it's advantages, and QT's libraries.
