Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers

"Xfce was far more responsive than either GNOME or KDE. The numbers bore that out: I had to use the command "free -m" to see how much RAM was being used at idle, because the Xfce Task Manager only showed percentage RAM consumption, and I found that only 200 MB of RAM was being used at idle. That's a little higher than I'd like for Xfce, but it's still way lower than either GNOME 3 or KDE 4. That's basically where my time ended, because I just wanted to get a feel for what using the Xfce desktop would be like, generally speaking.

That's where my time with Sabayon ended. The fact that I couldn't get the Google Talk plugin to work after so much effort makes me continue to not recommend that newbies install and use Sabayon on a daily basis.
