hi

i'm picking up an imac (specs in the subject) i bought on ebay tomorrow. gentoo is the nr 1 candidate to be installed on this blue baby.
i need a _real_ de so i'm thinking about emerging kde. what should i expect in terms of performance (install/compile time is not an issue)?

i think kde would be a good choice over gnome cause i can use less ram hungry apps.

koffice instead of openoffice
konq instead of firefox... i'm expecting to use less ram if konq is open as file manager and web browser (and ftp client) at the same time

...or am i wrong with my assumptions?

what do you think? anyone with the same or similar config?

KDE will take a long long time to compile. XFce is a better bet for a lightweight desktop environment. Performance in xfce is far greater than in kde, especially on slower machines.
