@Linux4Everyone I'm setting up openSUSE Tumbleweed in 2 VMs to do KDE vs XFCE.
I could also try Manjaro.
Does anyone know another distro quick to install which has KDE Plasma 5.17(released 10 days ago) and XFCE?
@Linux4Everyone Meanwhile, here are some comparisons about UIs RAM usage on Debian 10.1 Live in VirtualBox:
On the desktop after booting the live and with only a terminal opened:
- Mate: 369 MiB
- LXQt: 375 MiB
- XFCE: 403 MiB
- KDE: 497 MiB
- Cinnamon: 630 MiB
- Gnome: 650 MiB
- LXDE: 675 MiB (that's suspiciously a lot)
