Possibly if you got rid of ALL server and logging software running in
the background you might make KDE 2.2 run almost as well as Win95, but
it would mean disabling crond, sendmail/MTA, syslog, atd, [x]inetd and
all the other things which makes Linux more useful than Windows for me..
It's obviously more accurate to compare Linux to NT in this case.
