Not many of us have the powerful rigs that can do all the bells and whistles that KDE has, and from what I've seen half the errors from KDE come from all the extra bells and whistles.
If you really want it, why not learn to write an extension for Cinnamon? As I said over on the Github, someone has already done an extension for Wobbly Windows, so the others bits can probably be done as extensions.

Other ideas arent bad either any idea should have some setting to turn on or off then people that want more minimal can turn/keep off those that want bit more eye candy can turn on.
That's what I was trying to tell them but they don't want to understand me

When you speak about resource eating desktop you forgot that new computers have 8 GB of RAM and more and that you would come any close to use them all no matter what Our friend here has understood the trick he just went and disabled the sound effects; Me and my friends have enebled them all to get that " gingle bells" effect. We want to have a circus runnig on our screens and I guess we have every right to that

it would be too confusing for them and to much bloat for me, on one system I even had to put all the main links as shortcuts on a desktop so that person didn't have to go anywhere but their desktop (my mother in her 70's), it just made it a lot easier for her.
My wife only needs to see a folder name and knows quite a bit but doesn't want to be bothered with more, my sister only needs a basic system anything more she destroys it by fooling around with the settings to much and I wind up doing another reinstall or fixing the mess she created (yup can't keep her hand out of the cookie jar), middle of the road just seems to work.
you learnt how to make your themes in short time, it wouldn't take much longer for these things.
