    Among the most popular ones, Gnome is generally considered to be lighter/faster than KDE desktops. Though both are still a bit bloated or heavy on the resources according to some. Xfce is light and have been used in some netbooks with Linux OS.

    I still prefer KDE. It's fast enough for me. I can't stand Gnome, although it has come a long way on the "looks" and not like an old desktop environment (in the 80s) anymore. LOL!

    How long has this project been around. First time I've hear about this. Looks sweet. But what's with the "partly" GPL and "partly" LGPL? half of each or some code are proprietary?

    For speed you can check out xubuntu

    I haven't used enough distros to give a good opinion on the best but I like ubuntu.
