There is more to discuss, but opening a new topic for everything might be a bit much. Here's a quick overview of what exists already:
Compose key is just to provide another layer of Alt Gr function? I tried right now, and compose seems to do nothing useful for me.
And where's the beginning? I mean, for us, mere mortals that don't have a clue about what are you saying? Why should I install Linux operative system in the first place?
Doesn't Linux gives you much more work and much less available software?Etc...
What are the benefits over windows?Why do you use mysterious terms no one uses?
Here's a few things that aren't useful per se, but note that you might not want to use Alt Gr for some reason or other:Alt Gr + m = µ; Compose, m, u = µAlt Gr + s = ß; Compose, s, s = ßAlt Gr + c = ©; Compose, o, c = ©
Alt Gr + what produces ™?
Alt Gr + what produces ¥?
How do you type ±?
Why does z lead to æ and Æ?
Besides what you mentioned, I just need an image editing software, but I'm sure that exists.
To me it feels Xfce is the best desktop environment to make the switch.

In the graphical section, KDE provides the best "different" experience (kind of).
Unity is Mac-ish (I suppose - I have seen Macs only in shops) and I think its utility is only in appealing to those who switch from a Mac.
Dwm and the likes are too barebones, only good to shoot up multiple terminal windows, which can just as well be done with tmux or 'screen'.
Otherwise the only truly different experience is to do everything in the console.

I'd argue it's simply an extremely effective paradigm, but people looking for something else might at least initially be more pleased with Unity.
Xfce 4.8 and 4.10 made large strides in improving the user experience. It's now closer to where Gnome 2 was in 2010.
In any case, do you have any tips for using WindowMaker?
Or screenshots of your setup?
