Gnome The future of GNOME - an interesting subject. GNOME 3 has been out and about for a while, and it hasn't exactly been a smashing success. One of the efforts to take GNOME to the next level is what the team refers to as GNOME OS - but in reality, it's a set of improvements to GNOME that are just as interesting to GNOME-the-desktop-environment.

I've run KDE 4.2 or 4.3 on an Asus eeePC 701, the original one, with a 600 MHz Celeron processor and only 256 (or 512?) MB of RAM, using the crappiest Intel video chipset around...

I keep hearing stuff like this, and I keep not understanding it. KDE 4 is slow to start and slow to run on my Eee 1005HAB, with a gig of RAM and a dual-core CPU. Kubuntu, OpenSuSE, Fedora, whatever... Default configurations or otherwise, all are quite sluggish.

Needless to say, I would very much like to know how you managed to get KDE 4 in a usable state on a machine with a 600 MHz processor.
