I disagree. I run KDE 3.1 with all of the bells and wistles turned on on a Celeron 333, performance compares favourably to Windows XP running on a coworker's Duron 1300. All I would do before I set that up is to add some RAM to that system. The Celeron 333 based system I use to run KDE 3.1 has 320MB of RAM, and I am even considering an upgrade to 512MB. KDE, ever since 3.0, has been very RAM heavy, I wouldn't run it if I didn't have atleast 256MB RAM. With *EVERYTHING* nifty turned off, ie, making it look like Windows 95, I have seen 3.0.3 run on systems with Pentium 150 processors with 32MB of RAM, it's not pretty though and it takes about 5 seconds for any menu to pop up, 5 seconds too long. If you find a "half-way" between this, it should work nicely with 128MB, but than it would basically look and run like KDE 2, and it wouldn't be worth the effort, IMHO.
