    295 is just without buffers+pagecache, but it still includes slab cache.
    Code:
    #as root:
    sync && echo 3 > /proc/sys/vm/drop_caches && free
    Will give you the right value.

    Side note: 64bit gives an average of 20% more.

      All of those memory consumption figures are leaving me asking "Just what Ubuntu?" All of those memory values are much much higher than I've seen in Fedora, openSUSE and Slackware of the DEs I've played around with.

        KDE boot/login speed

        has sped up considerably with the 4.9 release. Martin Graesslin has been successful with his personal goal of making the login speed faster, and I hope he keeps it up.

        IMHO, the login speed of KDE is it's last big problem. Sure, there are plenty of new features that could/should be added, but none nearly as important. And as to KDE memory usage, when your software does more and has more features built in, the realistic effect is that more memory gets used. Though this 1.4GB of memory usage figure is crazy. That's a Kubuntu problem, not a KDE problem. My usage is just under 500MB.

        Those of you who complain about bugs need to file bug reports. They do get fixed. If yours aren't getting fixed, you need to offer more usable information. This is a PEBKAC issue, not a KDE issue.

          In that case, I get:

          Code:
                       total       used       free     shared    buffers     cached
          Mem:         16003        386      15616          0          0         95
          -/+ buffers/cache:        290      15712
          Swap:        24576          0      24576
          I'm on 64-bit of course.

            Automatic Bug Reporting Tool

            http://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/...e/ch-abrt.html

            Bug reports should be a breeze for anybody.

            If your distribution doesn't have something like this(and this is not anything new) then what you need to do is go to http://fedoraproject.org/en/get-fedora-options#desktops

            Complaining about bugs is annoying and a waste of time. Get a distribution that makes this easy and useful. Ubuntu also has such a feature, Apport. In addition, GNOME has a program called Bug Buddy, and KDE has it's program, Dr. Konqi.



            Here's Apport:

              Ha, I was wondering why he used KDE 4.8.x in Oct '12.

                You want some numbers? Have some numbers!

                Some rather unscientific tests completed by launching various DEs from first start-up on an updated Fedora 16 system:

                Blackbox 0.70.1:


                LXDE 0.5.5:


                Xfce 4.8:


                Note that pnmixer is automatically launched for me upon logging into either LXDE or Xfce, and so is Desurium, although in both instances I closed it before checking the memory usage.

                    Neither has KDE for about 5 years now. In fact pretty much nothing new in KDE 4 uses the scheme. Plasma, solid, phonon, dolphin, activities, nepomuk, strigi, akonadi, okular, marble, reqkonq, etc. Several games had to be renamed for trademark reasons, and they all removed the k__ prefix. KOffice was renamed to Calligra (I know, technically it was a split but pretty much everyone went with Calligra and KOffice appears to be dead). The use of the k_ prefix is now strongly discouraged for new KDE projects.

                      Yeah, see your Fedora XFCE memory usage is only 200+ MB. The Ubuntu memory usage in the shootout is over 900MB.

                      Crazy.
