evolution of speed

First I used KDE several years ago. Then I switched to Gnome when 2.8 came out since it had improved so much. But I still wanted more speed so then I switched to XFCE4.2. This setup is probably not for newbies since you can use either KDE or Gnome applications under XFCE4 but you will have to setup application launchers for the applications.

I am using some parts of Gnome 2.12 now: Evince PDF viewer and it is the best PDF viewer out there; and the clearview theme. This is what is cool about XFCE4 you can use any Gnome application but you don't get the environment bloat that goes with it.
