Featured Comments: Week of 2012 January 8

There was one post that got a handful of comments this past week, so I'll repost a few of those.

Review: Razor-Qt 0.4.0 (via Ubuntu Razor-Qt Remix)


Reader Jeff Hoogland said, "220 while being far less than KDE is a good deal more than LXDE and E17. Still more alternatives are good."
Commenter Barnaby supported this: "220 MB? LXDE on Salix basic needs only 45, but it's still early days, hopefully it will come down. Thanks for the very detailed walkthrough. Your blog is still getting better, and it wasn't bad to begin with. Interesting. Cheers".
Reader desm0tes had this view: "I've been using LXDE with Compiz for about a year now (left Gnome BEFORE it became cool!!! (lol just kidding: left Gnome for personal reasons way before G3 and not because of it)), and haven't been using any KDE for a long time (8-10 yrs maybe) - but I heard of Razor-qt and had to try it: it's not really "mature" yet, but it's promising. For now, it needs some hard coding and the cumbersome KDE-"theming"-section to customize it, yet there are not that many apps for QT as are for GTK, so it takes time to customize a whole desktop in the way I like it...anyway, I'll stick with it for at least a week maybe, growing accustomed to it and then decide over it for now. But even if I might decide to not use it anymore, this doesn't mean, there is no need for Razor-qt....otherwise there would be no KDE (don't like the whole look and feel of it, esp the panel and the system settings...the plasma-panel seems to not have changed that in a way) , Gnome (tried g3 and the gnome-shell for 1-2 days and didn't like it) or XFCE (cheap copy of g2, why start it at all in the days of g2??^^), not to speak of all the window managers, ROX or E17."
Commenter Mark said, "Im pretty sure it idles at a lot lower if you're using Openbox as your WM as LXDE does. Kwin is as bloated as KDE..."

Thanks to all those who commented on this past week's posts. This coming week, I intend to have another review out. Anyway, if you like what I write, please continue subscribing and commenting!
