So I have 2 gigs of ram.... I have been running Kubuntu 12.04

Should I try XFCE or stick with KDE?
For testing stuff, I run KDE in a VM allocated with 1.5G of memory. No problems memory
wise for what I use it.
Assuming you have the disk space, install both of them and then move to the one that suits
your needs. On my "work" machine I've got a few Desktop Environments
installed and when I have some troubles with KDE I switch to GNOME and I'm quickly
happy with KDE again. :-) :-)
One thing that *may* be of value to you is to run a KDE desktop but use lightdm as the
Display Manager. Not something I've tried....but lightdm may use less memory than
kdm. Again, I'm just speculating.
Really havent had too many issues with KDE memory wise besides AKONDI
memory when KMAIL isnt open. but other than that thanks to KSPLICE ive had 21,
22 consecutive uptime without a reboot.
The only time I reboot my system is when the kernel is updated.

Shows the late updates to the kernel under F20.
