The comparison of memory usage of 13 distros is here:

I uploaded a PDF and the LibreOffice Calc source file, if anyone wants to
format it differently.

This all began because, after switching to LXQt (I had been on 18.04), it
was enough of a change that I wanted to refamiliarize myself other distros,
see if something else suits me better (I'm liking Peppermint 9.2. Also Mint
Mate 19.1 and MX 18.2. I'm going to continue playing with those until the
new versions of Peppermint and/or Mint Mate are released in 2-3 months.
Then probably go to one of those for awhile.).

FWIW: The greatest impediment to me using LXQt is the way PCManFM treats
the scroll wheel with more levity (less gravity). It spins faster. I think
it's respecting the "3 lines" default in LXQt-settings->Keyboard & Mouse.
But, I think it treats rows as a lines.  And so, it has a greater spin than
the old LXDE PCManFM. It's hard for me to adjust between scrolling the web
browser, Featherpad, etc., and then have to be ginger with PCManFM
scrolling more than I anticipate.

It's not a serious problem. But that was the primary reason to start
looking. Maybe other people like it. I'm not saying it's wrong. Just wrong
for me. (It initially reminded me of web sites that will change how
scrolling works. Often those sites are just showing off, being cute, "look
what I can do with javascipt" glitter. I get really annoyed when I visit
one of those. So, PCManFM-Qt initial effected me that way. But, now I think
it's trying to translate the "3 lines" scrollwheel value to rows. If that's
true, it seems reasonable. I just don't like it.
