Gentoo and KDE 4.6, Nice Companions

Filed under

I recently made a big jump from Debian to Gentoo on my EeePC netbook. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a Debian fan; I just feel like that I need to try new things.

Gentoo was my first source-based distro. I was also thinking of Crux but it slipped away when I realized that Gentoo is much better documented and has a larger community. I was originally just planning to settle for a X-free environment but I suddenly had this desire that I wanted to try KDE. KDE is not the first thing that comes to mind when you have a netbook. Instead, XFCE is lightweight and is doing very well on my Arch Linux laptop. However, It’s time to experiment with KDE and see whether it fits my need or not. Well, it seems it does.

So far, KDE speed and performace seems to be acceptable on such a low-profile netbook unless I start to open fifteen apps everything goes very well and that is fine for me.
