Performance is all relative though, based on what your machine's

Gnome and KDE approximately 1-2 years ago because I found compiling the
packages to be too much of a pain and take too much time to accomplish.
I use XFCE4.2, and if I feel like it, I use fluxbox from time to time.
However, functionality-wise I find XFCE4.2 to be the best thing out
there right now, mostly because of the additional daemons and minor
programs that run in the background for both KDE (Konqueror, kstart,
etc) and Gnome (Nautilus, gnome*daemon, etc).
I will say this though: if you want everything, including all the
trimmings in a desktop, go for KDE. If you want hardware to just work
and like a more "polished" (ie less cubic) and maybe a bit cartoony
look, go for Gnome.

KDE seems like it is bloated so I was considering Gnome. I have also
been reading about enlightenment and it sounds interesting. I have
looked into Fluxbox and it also seems like it would do the trick.
Would I be better off just going with Gnome or KDE? I realize once I
start installing apps that I will probably wind up installing
something that uses Gnome or KDE libraries so I am going to wind up
bloating my system any ways right?
gnome and kde are both bloated, why not xfce or fluxbox, they are both
lean and fast.
