| Not mine, but one Korneliusz Jarzebski (in Polish) has done the numbers

KDE 4: like a dream on 256Mb/1Ghz/Intel!

| And I was pleasantly surprised with how well it all works. With a "debugfull"
| build from SVN. With kwin_composite 3d eye candy, on Intel. With KDE 3
| libraries loaded too (for KPowerSave, since it's not ported yet). As they
| like to say here in Franconia, it's like "a'Traum". *

KDE takes stand on OOXML; GNOME dithers

,----[ Quote ]
| Three cheers for the developers and management of the K Desktop Environment.
| They have taken a principled stand on the divisive issue of OOXML, the
| Microsoft Office Open XML document format. And for this the KDE folk deserve
| a round of applause.
