Debian and its clones Developer Frans Pop, author of debtree, posted an article showing the evolution in size of the GNOME desktop environment in recent Debian releases. The picture he paints isn't particularly pretty: the default GNOME install has increased drastically in size over the years.

You are going too extreme. If one is not happy with the size of GNOME, should go for only twm? There are so many window managers and desktops out there like xfce, enlightenment 6 & 7, fvwm, WindowMaker, Afterstep and on and on. Xfce is quite usable with some enough eyecandy I reckon.. and what about Enlightenment 7? so slim and lots of eyecandy.


BTW, please get off from his lawn!

I recommend giving LXde a try if you want a leaner, faster desktop; works well for me.
