Actually, I use lxde (light-weight X desktop environment). It uses
about 1/2 the memory of either Gnome or KDE. It's kind of Windows
98-ish, in that it doesn't have all kinds of stupid stuff on the
desktop. I don't know how to install it on Fedora, etc., but on
OpenSuse, when asked whether I want to install KDE or Gnome, I select
"Other", and then can choose lxde, xfce, and whatever.
