Re: slooooooow

Give a try to IceWM is good looking, *very* fast and user frendly. It was usable in my old 486 with 24 RAM box
Any way KDE rocks!
Good luck

Just put my hd (maxtor 40 gigs 5400 rpm for therecord - that's also the one I swap to) into a p133 (48 MB ram) because my athlon cpu burnt. I just couldn't believe my eyes. I thought kde got faster with 3.0, at least that's what the kde guys promised us. Some stats, taken on my system running enlightenment 0.16, xfree86 4.2 and a minimum of background tasks like cups and 2 Eterms:

- opening a "new message" window in kmail: 10 seconds
- starting konqueror: about 5 minutes
- starting kmail: must be over 2 minutes.
- selecting an other message in this mailing list (800 messages): about 2 secs
- scrolling through theheader pane: an estimated 3 fps
- starting the stupidest program on earth, ksnapshot: 25 secs
- average cpu usage reading emails: 80%.
- megs of swap mem used: 50. Just *unbearable*. I have yet to start thinking about what running a fullblown kde session on this box will do. I remember having 7 apps like kword, xmms, kmail,... open at the same time and still enjoying it. Ok kmail was never fast but can anyone recommend me a good DE or compiler please :-)
