This script is great ! I run it on my notebook to check for memory footprint
and the conclusion is Xfce rock !! You can install Xfce on a old 256MB RAM
Yeah I know that you all know that but ... it still great to have a nice DE
that run smooth with few RAM !!
I put my tests on the wiki : http://wiki.xfce.org/minimum_requirements
Have a nice day,
