    The good thing about KDE applications is that they share a lot of libraries which are only loaded once in memory. So, using for example dolphin+kate+okular+gwenview with many windows is using less ram than using nautilus+gedit+evince+eog with the same windows, in my experience. Of course the difference is not so important and you should choose whatever suits you (I personally use KDE plasma but I prefer using most of the GNOME apps instead of the KDE's equivalent)

    but I'm not sure how can you make this work with Linux's own infrastructure (i.e. without using a python script), maybe you need to write a kernel module for that?
    Just make it a USB HID class compliant device. No special driver needed then.

    In fact, most Laptops with accelerometers (2-in-1s) use HID-over-I2C, i.e. the USB physical and signaling layer is replaced with I2C, but the report data is the one stemming from USB HID.

    I believe that's why gnome used less ram than xfce, more native apps.
    The difference was pretty minimal however.
    You should interpret my request as not just the shell running but common applications such as a file manager, a terminal, a web browser, virt manager or other common utility... I didn't mean every application should run in one and not the other. I meant the default file manager for each etc. Dolphin uses much more ram than nautilus in my experience...
    Similar to Forbes testing but a round up of many popular de and inclusive of cpu cycles.

    What do you mean "native apps"? Apps are written on top of Qt or Gtk+. With the help of the likes of KDE Frameworks.
    That makes it hard to judge how much an app actually weighs: it may appear to use less RAM because the underlying widgets and stuff are already loaded by the OS.
    So if you see one DE eating 400MB RAM on startup and 600MB with the file browser open, while the other DE uses 450MB on startup and 550MB with the file manager open, that doesn't necessarily mean the second file manager is leaner. It's a strong hint, don't get me wrong, but it's not a surefire way to tell.

    And then there's a matter of how much functionality you get for those MB of RAM.

    Honestly, if you're curious about those numbers, I think it would be better to measure them yourself and of them what you want. I think there's no way for Michael to present those numbers in a way that won't start a flame war because he missed something, he didn't measure right or that he favored one party over another.

    Stable XFCE 4.16 is planned for June
    Xfeces uses twice as much ram since it switched to GTK3. This hodgepodge DE is dead on arrival.
