Furthermore I can go further down with KDE's memory usage (okay, it is by using Gentoo of course). I run it on several boxes and it is quite fine, even on a VIA C3-2 with 512 M RAM.
Or, as Captain Obvious said somewhere else: VI uses less memory than MS Word 2007. LOL.
Compare only Gnome and KDE next time or XFCE with another lightweight.
It is okay to point out some weak points in software packages but please don't compare them with completely different things.
Stop TCPA, stupid software patents and corrupt politicians!
