LXDE. It will save more resources. I don't bother with KDE or GNOME on older or low spec hardware, they are too much of a resource hogs on those systems.

LXDE is what I switched my Netbook to. Gnome ran OK on it, but the memory usage dropped about 100 MB by switching from gnome to LXDE.. http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...6/#post3334538

Have a read of this for an explanation of memory usage under Linux.

Ok, thanks. That's what I'm using at the moment, and I like it so far. Faster and simpler but still looks nice.
