I use Fedora Core 3. My personal feeling is that KDE takes more time than GNOME to complete boot up. After showing the desktop KDE shows the hourglass for a moderately long time but GNOME do not. What do you feel?

For me gnome loads faster. But not on the basis of loading speed would I recommend a windows manager. Only Microsoft windows managers need to be shut down on a regular basis.

FWIW, gnome apps run just fine as long as you have the gtk libraries installed, just like KDE apps, unless statically-linked, will require the kdelibs package to be installed.
