KDE KDE's Aaron Seigo (who owes me a Martini) wrote about a few often-heard misconceptions and questions regarding KDE 4.0, which is supposed to be released January 11th. "Now that 4.0.0 is tagged and out and that bit of worry and concern is behind me for the moment, I wanted to take a moment to talk really bluntly about 4.0. In particular, I'm going to address some of the common memes in fairly random order that I see about kde 3.5 and 4.0. I'm going to speak bluntly (though not rudely) so prepare yourself."

Haha, ok, fair enough. Let's wait until a few days/weeks/months until after KDE4 is officially released, and see what will happen when someone compares finished products.

Also, in your posts I saw the free command I never knew that existed.

But with your arguments on u/forum in mind, there's got to be a way to accurately gauge this thing.

Also, I agree with the notion that unused memory is wasted memory, but Gsysguard seems to do a better job of reporting than Ksysguard does.(by dividing the caches away from actual memory usage)

Thanks for the work you and the rest of the KDE team have done.

"Unused memory is wasted memory"

Well - only up to the point when you have to specify how much memory the FE-code is allowed to take.
Then you start to wonder, whether you need to leave 0.5 or 4 GB of memory to KDE ;)

I like the way Ksysguard shows the cached memory. I then can see how much is really necessary for the apps, and how much is discardable to make room for my FE number crunching.
