"Does KDE use too much memory?"

very much so! 3 TIMES AS MUCH MEMORY AS GNOME, to be exact. if you don't believe me, set up a system for yourself with gdesklets running on gnome and the equivelent superkaramba on kde.

How about: "If you do not believe me: here are some numbers that I have gotten while experimenting"

or: "These was the exact setup I used, so that you can verify my claims" (the scientific method)


have you verified that it wasn't just caches that were allocated from your system, but real used memory? Until you go into a little more detail I am forced to take your finding with a big grain of salt.


What i can take from your comment is that there is at least a perceived problem with the memory usage on which people will have to work.

Errr, no. The memory numbers you'll get are completely different depending on things like caching, particularly on Linux. Open GDesklets, Firefox, Nautilus and Evolution and all those normal apps you use and watch it go down the pan. KDE's memory usage will stay just about consistent.

It's a well known fact that you can't run Gnome on anything less than 256 MB, and the more the better.
