Desktop memory usage

This was actually supposed to be a follow-up to my tests of startup performance of various desktop environments, primarily KDE of course. Smile In fact I even did most of the benchmarks some time after the startup ones, but, alas, I'm much better at writing things that computers are supposed to read than at writing things that people will read Confused (some volunteer to write good user documentation for KWin's window specific settings, BTW Eye-wink ?) I even meant to make a somewhat more extensive analysis of the numbers, but having never found time to write that, I decided I should publish at least a shorter variant with all the numbers and some conclusions. You can do your own analyses of the numbers if you will.

These memory benchmarks are meant to measure various cases of desktop configuration and compare KDE to some other desktop environments ... and since it's actually a bit too long for a blog entry, I've put the complete version here. I'm not going to put any numbers here, but let me say that some of the numbers comparing KDE, GNOME, Xfce and Window Maker are quite interesting (and they come from one of my favourite hero tools Exmap, so they shouldn't be completely off the track). However, one thing I'm going to copy here is the final section titled The things we should learn from this:

7 reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 "Utopic Unicorn"

When we laid out our featured article on things you need to do after installing Ubuntu 14.10, we shared a few little issues we have had with the latest Ubuntu release. Well things got worse, and I decided to try something else for a change. I've been using elementary OS Freya as my daily driver since then. And I have to say, I'm mighty impressed so far. And the fact that Freya is still very much in beta makes the whole affair all the more interesting. A list of reasons why I prefer elementary OS Freya over Ubuntu 14.10 at the moment. Read more
