    GNOME isn't that resource intensive anymore.
    It was years ago, but now it is comparable with KDE.
    Last time I tried it was late last year and it was resource intensive still. And mind you: it was a very barebones install on Void, so no extra distro crap or even systemd slowing everything down. It was like 800-900 MB idle and my fans were noticeable. With KDE, I never hear my fans when idle and resource usage is between 350 and 600 MB idle.
    And mind you: this is on a proper PC (I ditched my notebook last year), so I can only imagine that GNOME would be more resource intensive on a notebook still.

      I missed the point of this water-cooling thing...

        It was years ago - before Ubuntu switched to GNOME-, but now it is comparable with KDE.
        Fixed for you

          Perhaps he finds Plasma resource-heavy, but I understood his comment as humor, because real plasma is very hot.

            It is not. It is unusable on lowend SoCs. I could just go ahead and try it again on Gemini Lake it would be guaranteed that there'd be frame drops with mpv for even 24fps video. 100% assured.
            This is not bashing, this is just the facts.

              Could be they're baiting LinusTechTips to make a video on it (they tend to make videos with weird hardware like this), in order to spread the Tuxedo brand.

                  Except it is highly representative for (hundreds of) millions of slow devices out there, on which Gnome Wayland runs worse than Windows 11, whereas Plasma Wayland runs better.
                  Plasma Wayland session performance is comparable to Sway, whereas Gnome clearly isn't.

                    Lets try and run it on a P3 with 2GB of ram... and see how badly all the modern desktops crawl even with an accelerated graphics card (should be able to get an AGP 4x card on a P3 system).
