Memroy usage

Well I just tried Xfce4.4 and it's alot better especially with Thunar, xfce previous filemanagr was aweful. According to my memory stats it takes about 80Mb ram plus 10Mb for Thunar.

GNOME-2.14.1 takes about the same memory and nautilus starts up just as quick as Thunar. I better Xfce4.4 will be faster on a lower end system but cannot think why since the stats are the same.

Thunar is nice but it is very Nautilus like with some fuctionallity stripped out yet almost identical. Good job anyway.

You bring up performance issues which is generally a source of contradictions.

Without the how, where, and data, it generally is futile.

On top of that, to detect memory use on Linux is really controversial. Some people sometimes would use FreeBSD for that, but it seems that one of the newest kernels of Linux has better support for memory use detection.

Nice job.
