But I wouldn´t try the same using GNOME, though. I have it installed and yes, it is usable, but I hardly call that a pleasing experience. All the other lightweight windowmanagers AND XFCE fly on this machine.

Never say never, Gnomw 2.10.1 from FC4 is quite usable on my old Thinkpad having an old 500MHz PIII,
500MB RAM, but I agree with you KDE feels a bit snappier and seam to run faster for every new release.
