I have a rather old laptop from 2006 with AMD Dual-Core 1.8 Ghz CPU, 2 GB RAM and a GeForce 6150 Go running Arch Linux 64 Bit. With Cinnamon or Gnome 3 it takes about 500 ms for the damn calender to pop out when I click the panel. With KDE everything just reacts instantly and looks even more fancy with all of its transparent effects. Qt just seems to be a way better toolkit.
