Well, by default it's pretty heavy. But use a few well-known tricks,
like cutting out Klipper, or kwrited, making /tmp/.ICE-unix owned by
root.root, and a few more, and you'll soon get its speed up. Disable
aRts, too, if you want a speed boost. I ran KDE on my P166 with 64mb of
RAM (later 96mb) just fine for quite some time - and that was KDE2!
