Question Is Fedora 17 considered a ' heavy ' OS? - by means of resources demanded


I ve VM installed Fedora 17 32bit on a Core 2 intel 2.53 GHz with 4GB RAM and gave fedora 20GB Disk Space with 1 GB RAM. However i can say its among the slowest Linux version along Kubuntu i've tried until now
(Kubuntu 10.10,12.04,Debian 6,Fedora 17)

While I would say debian is the lightest.

What is true?

Question for Moderators -SOMEONE MODERATOR ANSWER PLEASE! :'(
1.Until when Im allowed to use this newbie forum? post 50 maybe?

2.As you may have noticed, I start different threads even when a new question diverges just a bit from the thread title I've strated even if its still the same topic.
I do this for SEO purposes of the forum and think its the desired way also. If not you may inform.

You'll get a better idea of Fedora's true capabilities if you install the 64-bit version natively (not in a VM). There are many reasons why an OS could be slow, more data please... slow to boot? slow to render graphics/video? slow to load applications? what is the "host" operating system? have you tried a different DE such as Xfce?

A similar version of Linux running the same desktop environment will be very similar in performance. Allotting only a gig of RAM will put performance at the slower end of the scale. Running something in a VM like that will not give an accurate impression of it's speed.
