LXQt Memory Usage On Par With LXDE, Loiwer Than Xfce

LXQt developers have done a desktop memory consumption comparison to show that Qt programs are not necessarily bloated.

The tests done by developer "PCMan" show that LXQt 0.11 uses a bit more memory than the GTK2-based LXDE while using less memory than the GTK2-based Xfce.

The results show LXQt uses more memory than Openbox, to no surprise, while using much less memory than the Cinnamon Desktop and GNOME 3.

Those interested in more details on these basic desktop memory tests can find the results via the LXDE.org blog.
