I recently install KDE 4.3 on Ubuntu 9.04.
This environment runs super slow.
I have an Intel P Dual Core @ 1.46GHz.
I have 1GB of RAM running at 80%.
When running GNOME RAM is at 20%. Is it Xorg and plasma making my RAM go so high. If so, is KDE competing with MS on who can spike up a users RAM the highest? GNOME is really a good desktop. KDE is pretty, but... Is my solution to buy more RAM?
