I think I've found a winner with Debian Jessie and XFCE with Kwin and the Whisker menu.
Edit: And compiz was an important part of knowing which distro I should go for. It is relevant to this topic. But I can use Kwin instead of compiz with Xfce, which seems to be a very nice mix. I'm downloading the CD debian now as the netinstaller didn't connect to my wifi properly. I'm installing stable and then I will upgrade to testing afterwards.
