                                        Nautilus is incredibly sluggish comparing to konqueror. I am also running Sarge with KDE and I can tell you that this combination gave me the fastest Linux desktop, I've ever had.  A bit outdated though.

the interface feels so incredibly sluggish. I'm not talking about
startup times of apps, which really doesn't bother me at all; it's the
responsiveness of apps after they've started. In particular firefox is
incredibly slow, compared to under windows 2000.

I really don't want to go back to windows again, so I'm interested in
if anybody knows how well gnome and firefox runs under for example
Are their other performance-minded distros out there?
