I follow KDE developments and (if I recall correctly) the main focus
from the 3.1 -> 3.2 release was for speed improvements and "bloat
reduction" - i.e. to use less memory.
I missed your previous e-mail but Niall pointed out that you mentioned
running OOo; OOo eats menory. It really does. I have a laptop with
256MB and a desktop with 512MB and the difference that OOo causes to
overall speed is easily observed between the two.
I'd upgrade your RAM if I were you - it's getting cheaper all the time
(try out http://www.shop4memory.com/ - they usually have good deals).
