KDE 2.2 works well on my 96MB PII machine. At the moment,
I'm running Linux, XF86 4.1, KDE 2.2 and Kmail to send this
message. Memory usage is 39580K. My memory usage is
a bit lower than average because I have no mail, web
or ftp server.
I would expect KDE 2.2 to be slow with 32MB, good with 64MB,
great with 128MB.
KDE 2.2 is definitely faster than 2.0 or 2.1. Konqueror is much
faster at displaying directories with a lot of files. Have a look
in /dev/ and you will see what I mean - 1.5 seconds with 2.2,
a lot longer with 2.1.
KDE 2.2.1 is already on ftp.kde.org
