11 Last I tried it, you can't run much of that stuff without the
12 whole "kdeinit" thing, which is a giant resource hog (relatively
13 speaking, for those of us accustomed to running trim, fast, light
14 systems). That why I said it's become like an OS unto itself.
15 I remember when people used to carry on about bloaty GNUstep libs,
16 and I said "but those *are* small, fast, and light" and people
17 responded to me in the manner I've responded to kde people who say
18 that about kde. So it really is all quite relative...
19 :)
21 My standard is simple: it has to be able to work without a mouse,
22 and when I hit the keys, I want to see results *immediately* --
23 real results, not a "wait" dialog or spinny thing.
