XFCE ends up using 20MB more RAM than GNOME
I've been playing with getting XFCE installed on my netbook, under Ubuntu 9.04, and every time I've done it, I noticed that XFCE ends up using 20MB more RAM than GNOME does. I'm not sure why, but I'm a little curious, as XFCE is supposed to be a "lightweight" WM. Might the fact I installed it via the xubuntu-desktop package have anything to do with this fact? So far as I know, it's only XFCE that does this. I've tried LXDE, and it came out using 40MB less RAM than my GNOME session.
