    Under Jaunty, the most kwin uses on my laptop is 20-30% or so (which is still a lot if you ask me). Xorg is the one that goes nuts; 30-60% a few minutes after I turn on my laptop. Now that's just insane. This is with radeon (6.12.1) and opengl composition.

In example Konqueror is as efficient as Firefox 3 when comes to memory usage and its interface is far more responsive. It's not fair to compare KDE 4 and Gnome, because Gnome doesn't have many KDE features (so it consumes less memory).
      Hi. If Marble suffers from severe performance issues for you then it's most likely a driver issue related to XOrg drivers whose 2D support is bad. You can try running Marble with

      marble -graphicssystem raster

      if you are using Qt 4.5. Or wait for Marble 0.8 which will have this mode as a setting in the settings dialog. If this improves speed then it's definetely an XOrg bug and you should report it to the XOrg developers.
      Running Marble on Windows and MacOS X usually doesn't have this "performance issue" and performance there is fine.
