After a few days with it, it's definitely an improvement over Unity.
As I don't use a VM, I can't comment on disk space usage.

As with most window managers, you double-click the top part of a
window to maximize it or drag it around the screen.  For me, at least,
I would lose the ability to click this part of the window after using
Unity for some time.  I accepted it and just logged out and then back
in.  Happened to me around once a week or two for as long as I used

I never used KDE since I found it to be a bit slow.  Maybe it was just me?

Issues like the above are now gone.  In fact, so far, nothing
seriously wrong with it...  So at least for me, worth the switch [*]!


[*]  I suppose I should really wait "one or two weeks" before I can be
sure that Unity bug is gone...  Maybe I'm celebrating too soon!  :-)
