Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I have already disabled desktop effects, can I do something else to make Kde 4.3 faster ?
Kindly guide !
What do you think we can "kindly guide" you with? You don't say anything about the hardware you're trying to run this on, or what the problem really is, or what your needs are.
Saying "make it faster" is pointless...you may want 300 frames per second at 2560x2048x32bpp, out of a netbook, and that isn't going to happen. Then again, you might have the latest nVidia monster card, and don't have the drivers right. Provide details and a good question, and we might be able to help.
I actually wanted to remove everything that was making kde slower in responding as compared to xfce.
That's a tall order! You would have to get the KDE source, reverse engineer it (seriously non-trivial!) until you understood it well enough to excise the bulk of it (maybe not even possible because of cross-dependencies). Impracticably difficult (?) and then you'd have to start over when a new release of KDE appears.
Easier to remove the KDE dependencies from Kde-Marble?

I thought i could uncheck all the memory hogging softwares from yast and get a faster KDE ! Is'nt that possible somehow ?
