I have run Mandriva + KDE 4.1 and MS Windows XP SP2 on the same machine, of the specification stated above (P4 11 GHz, 256 MiB) and I assure you that Mandriva is significantly slower and less responsive.

It heavily depends on the machine, I would suggest.

If KDE 4.1 is too heavy for your machine, and/or the machine does not have a correct GPU+linux driver for working 2D graphics acceleration under X11, then use either Mandriva + XFCE or Mandriva + LXDE to get better-than-XP performance.
