I've seen this before, but kind of forgot about it.


I learned a few things. Gnome tales up more RAM than expected (comparitatively)
More people use KDE than I would have expected.

Interesting to note that lxqt doesn't support HiDPI.
It looks like this is a little dated. Gnome 4.2 has some options that show
as disabled on this page.
But I think it's a good base-line.

Thanks for the latest I've seen comparison.
Good to keep in mind KDE Plasma is not that heavy any more, relatively speaking.

Kde plasma is light but they have just to many options to get lost in . my go too are normally Xfce and Cinnamon. But lxqt is not bad

I am all for Xfce it does a nice job and doesn’t consume too much ram. Runs really well with Linuxlite on a netbook with 2 gig ram. I turned compositer off. Refracta my other machine uses has Xfce as well.
