Yes, but some desktops are getting out of hand. I recently got a
1.5GHz P4 with .5G RAM and it was smoking along pretty good with KDE
3.5. Just moved up to Slack 13 with KDE 4.2. Immediately took at
least a 20% speed hit. KDE has become a real pig.

nb

Then reinstall KDE 3.5.10
I did it on Mandriva 2009.1 just for the convenience of the copyable
digital clock. 4.2.4 lacks that time saver. 4.3.1 brings it back but that
is for 2010.0.

later
bliss
