http://www.linuxplanet.com/news/linux-top-3-xen-lives-fuduntu-dies-and-kde-slims.htmlThere is a perception among some Linux desktop users that the mainstream user interfaces like GNOME and KDE are 'bloated'. It's a perception that has led to the emergence of lightweight distros over the years like LXDE and xFCE (though xFCE today is arguably bloated itself).
KDE developers are now developing a 'lightweight' version of their desktop, one that provides a minimal footprint, while still providing the robust features that KDE is known for.
"The KlyDE project applies KDE's modularity and configurability to the challenge of making a lightweight desktop," KDE developer Will Stephenson wrote. "However, what I don't want to do is a hatchet job where functionality is crudely chopped out of the desktop to fit some conception of light weight."
Would love to try this on my netbook! Seems interesting.
