KDE Plasma. Several years I used I3 (which is great) but eventually got
tired of hacking with desktop integration issues. For example, default
applications, general settings for applications or system notifications.
There are solutions and work-around options but I got tired of those
"ah, this doesn't work anymore; I need to add one more hack."

In KDE's or Plasma's history I skipped from version 3.5 to 5.x something
and used Ratpoison, StumpWM, Awesome, Herbstluftwm, I3 between those.
I'm not slower or less productive with the Plasma desktop. It has plenty
of predefined key bindings for handling windows, and all keys are
configurable. In the end it's probably even more powerful than those
power user window managers that claim to be only keyboard driven. Plasma
has full keyboard control too but also all the desktop integration.
