14 I think we agree. Nowadays I use xfce because KDE is hungry and makes
15 my system slower. But there is a few application (amarok - big
16 bloatware but I like the amarok services, umbrello, krusader, kile,
17 etc) which is needed and I always have a full KDE install beside xfce.
18 What is your strategy? You will not use any KDE related application or
19 if something is needed you will install it separately?
