which do you think is better? KDE/Gnome (either/both) or a minimal WM that has support for both and runs faster (if you have very low ram, like me) I use icewm and gnome for a desktop, but it runs like 50x faster. Id have to wait 5-10 mins to start up konqueror/nautilus, but now nautilus takes me a minute or two, and thats when it starts up gnome as a desktop, other then that, its usually as fast as windows explorer... better once it starts! konqueror's a bit slow still.

well, which is better? having a customized small, light wm manager, and using just KDE/gnome as a desktop (still get almost everything you d witht the desktop), or using one and only one?

I pick the light wm with support for both... I mean, why not have both AND speed? I just anted to know what everyone else thought... Id probably be using KDE if I didnt have 64 mb of RAM, but since I found icewm, im sold to that for life. with a bit of customization(if your good with the gimp) it can look exactly like your gnome/KDE theme

Personaly I have a Gig of RAM so it doesn't make a big difference to me. I use a stripped down version of KDE. Works pretty well for me. I really like the way it runs. With a Gentoo system totally tweeked for KDE it helps.

I used Enlightenment for a wile, I liked it, but the menus were a little odd to me. So I switched back. I am probably going to get some screen shots up on my server some time soon here. I will put up a link when they are there.
