KDE According to these blog posts from SUSE/Novell KDE developers that include bootcharts showing KDE startup, recent performance improvements in fontconfig and KDE/Qt have a noticeable effect on startup times. KDE can even match Xfce startup time (both 5 seconds on a 900MHz laptop) when some KDE features are turned off to match Xfce more closely in terms of functionality.

Boot up vs. App responsiveness

I'll take application responsiveness and optimized memory usage within applications over being able to boot up KDE 3 seconds faster.

Now if that boot up performance included a stronger memory management solution that all third party apps can leverage then I'm all for it.
