Xfce Before we begin, here's what XFce's website has to say about itself: XFce is a lightweight desktop environment for unix-like operating systems. It aims to be fast and lightweight, while still being visually appealing and easy to use. It's based on the GTK+ toolkit version 2.

Performance

(No, it is a DE.)

"KDE - Minimum: P2-300 with 128mb ram"

Mind you, performance improved between KDE 2.x and KDE 3.x. I assume you mean KDE 3.x. I've ran KDE 2.x on a P2-400 + 128 MB RAM for quite a while and the performance was "acceptable".

"XFCE - Minimum: P133 with 32mb ram"

For XFce4 i can confirm this. Though the browser will run slowly (no matter wether you use Opera, Galeon or Mozilla Firefox).
