RE: Gnome bloat and is slow

Gnome is bloat.The Fedora core4 when I entered the gnome default environment,it consumed memory more than the kde 3.4 in fc4.

Memory, relative to the other parts of a computer is cheap. The difference between GNOME and KDE is at most 50-100MB. At today's prices, that's less than $10 worth of RAM. There is no way that is expensive for anyone with a computer.

gnome's no future

I think GNOME and KDE both have very bright futures. I recently installed Fedora Core 4 on my new computer, and I have to say that GNOME 2.10 is a nice environment. I've only been using it a couple of days, but it is clean, uncluttered, and very stable (I haven't encountered a bug yet). It's also pretty fast, though anything less would be inexcusable on a dual-core athlon64. It's certainly one of the more enjoyable user experiences I've had with a computer in the last few years.
