You are missing the point.
No, I understand your viewpoint. Apparently, you did not understand mine ...
go back and read my entire post. it looks like you replied without reading
all of it.
Starting any KDE app loads a lot of sh*t
in memory that need not be there. If I'm using only apps from one
environment, they share the same infrastructure (including libs loaded
in memory). It would be insane to go to a default where *both*
KDE and GNOME need to be loaded in order to do anything useful in GNOME.
Yup. That's what I said, only I didn't (and wouldn't) use the word
IMO, it's not that insane to _run_ GNOME and KDE apps side by side on top of
either KDE or GNOME. Yes, there are more libs loaded into memory, but have
you looked to see how much RAM is actually being used in that case? It's not
However, I agree it's not a good idea to force all users to install both GNOME
and KDE desktop environments.
But to run KDE and GNOME apps on top of each other doesn't require you to
install the whole of both desktop environments. In fact, it only requires a
very few libs.
If you had read my entire post, you would have seen that's what I was saying.
