TDE running here on a single-core AMD 3200XP with konsole and knotes
open. Headers from "htop" in the konsole:

CPU 	3.0%
Mem 	119/2026MB
Swp```` 0/2000MB

Compares closely to XFCE.. but with the elegance, style, configurability
and range of applications (yes, plenty spare power to run them) of TDE.

never mind the style, it crawls.

Gnome3 took the same direction as kde4 and is already in Debian Testing.
It is for high-end machines. Gnome2 (in the mainstream) will be axed.

For those who did not know,  Luddism was actually a revolutionary 
movement against new technology being deployed in a way that 
impoverished ordinary peoples' lives. It was countered by the use of 
agents provocateurs, military force, penal transportations and mass 

KDE4 spokespersons should choose their words more carefully (or is 
arrogance their intention?)
