I have full 3d effects enabled and working for both KDE and Gnome 3 Opensuse, and while KD3 is pretty and much more customizable I prefer the efficiency of Gnome 3. Weird, because a lot of people don't care much for it tongue.gif I also find the simplicity more beautiful in the end smile.gif

I'm not sure what you mean by efficiency but I never found Gnome in any form to provide it. But hey, some people like OSX and it's GUI and some don't.
Nothing was better than having nearly 20 programs open (yay for 8GBs RAM) and being able to present windows...type maybe two letters and have KDE bring up the program I wanted. The only downsides were from turning compositing off and then on again. Massive lag in all DEs though from that action. I just wish compositing didn't screw with VDPAU.

I have seen someone on here use a terminal web browser. I forgot to ask who uses that.

Hmm...I just checked and my results actually put them pretty close...when I had LXDE in Fedora I was using 128MB on login and with E17 I'm about 130MB (I don't mess around much with these two DEs defaults outside of adding XFCE power controls to LXDE since it doesn't have any). I thought E17 was winning but obviously having compositing built in to it is bloating it too much. tongue.gif
Nice to see we have competition on the "lighter" DEs.

Well to be fair there's not much in the way of GUI in gnome, but I guess that's why I like it much more. And I peronally can't stand OSX GUI, it seems overly complicated and yet basic at the same time. But the fact that we are having this discussion is a testament to the freedom we have with Linux smile.gif

Nice to see we have competition on the "lighter" DEs.

i got a windows 7 64bit ultimate install down to 450mb on login and down to 8GB HDD space! so 130 is awesome! i could run that on my phone if i had to!

Was giving Lynx a try, but it got annoying after a while after it kept asking if me about the cookies. Had to accept them or deny them. It's good for browsing though.

Interesting. I boot with ~60MB of RAM being used in Linux Mint LXDE, but then again. I have all the stuff that isn't needed turned off from boot. Many people have debated with me about E17 being lighter, but I always told them to go check it themselves lol.

Just a pointer on ram, the more you have the more it'll use. My laptop with 2gb boots into DWM with 40mb used. My desktop with 16gb boots with 200mb used. Same install mirrored over and everything. Also noticed the increase when I added the 2nd set of ram in the rig.

I wonder how that is even possible. For me in Arch Linux X itself tends to take 15 MB, fluxbox 6 MB, pcmanfm 14 MB, SLIM 6 MB, consolekit/polkit/udisks/cups 15 MB, bash/syslog 5MB = 71 MB, and my system has a lot more running underneath that so I can't imagine Mint taking only ~60 MB. My system ends up ending with 150 MB because of necessary wireless daemons (wicd, bluetooth) and a bunch of little other utilities. I would imagine Mint LXDE would run a lot more underneath that what I do.
