Been running KDE 3.5 for a week now and I have to say its not that bad. Loads and
runs faster than Gnome (which bogs on gnome-setting-daemon), about the same as
Xfce surprisingly. Setting the fonts too 11 makes most windows fit properly. KDM
took a bit and a trick to get running from reboot reliably but its all good now. Will post
some screenies soon smile.gif

Constantly fiddling with gui's for my debian powered Z. So far fluxbox has been the
fastest but it somehow feels incomplete too me (imo). Anyhows tried gnome full and
found it tedious to load. Anyhows it works nicely, like qtopia but better.

Hurdles to cross when useing it;

KDM needs help to run properly
Custom compiled onscreend to run with kde (looses its mind from default andromedia)
Setting general font to 11 helps screen size issues.

lxde in zubuntu might be a good halfway house between a full desktop-like GUI and a tiny bare-bones system?
