Comment Re:Gnome2 + KDE3 (Score 2) 315

are you implying that the previous versions of either WEREN'T bloat? Back when processing power was the main bottleneck in most desktops, KDE and GNOME made the system so slow and over-incumbered that it was just like using Windows, which for me defeated the purpose. Now obviously, times have changed, and speed isn't one of the driving forces behind moving to a linux system, but the GUIs are still too huge. Give me a window manager that boots in about 2 seconds flat (WindowMaker or ICE) any day.
