faster linux desktop…

i got quite frustrated with kde4 and it’s bugs/memory overeating/crashing… so, i’ve decided to switch to lightweight xfce and optimize desktop machine a bit…

first, i did some tweaking as said here, then i managed startup programs with rcconf, improved my graphics as described here and finally found decent applications which helped me to forget about kde4 🙂

used before -> using now
-> geany
amarok -> exaile
firefox -> google chrome
kontact -> evolution
ktorrent -> transmission
konsole -> terminal
kwallet -> revelation
kopete -> empathy
krdc -> terminal server client

btw. if U think that xfce is ugly, make sure U visit xfce-look and deviantart – U will be amazed!
