Gnome Honest question. Do you think the GNOME project is as healthy today as it was, say, 4 years ago? Benjamin Otte explains that no, it isn't. GNOME lacks developers, goals, mindshare and users. The situation as he describes it, is a lot more dire than I personally thought.

Sorry, but I must strongly disagree.
I ran Fedora 17 w/ KDE 4.9rc on a low-end Asus 1201N w/ 2GB RAM, and my idle memory usage (DE only) is under 300MB. (And Fedora is not really "slim").
Granted, Firefox / Chrome increase the memory usage dramatically when you start opening multiple tabs, but all in all, KDE 4.9 uses ~70-100MB more than XFCE 4.10.
