The american psychologist Paul Watzlawick calls this phenomenon "More of 
the same". The logic goes somehow like this: I just ate a chocolate bar, 
and I didn't get any slimmer. So I'll just eat three chocolate bars, and 
I'll sure as hell lose weight.

Six CPU's? 16 GB RAM? Hell, I've got a hand-compiled KDE 4.5.5 running 
perfectly on a first generation single-core PIV (1.8 GHz) with no more 
than 512 MB RAM. No complaints. (OK, built on a Slackware base, I 
patched some things to make it lighter and leave the cruft out...)

First things first: installing two desktop environments just to make one 
work OK is not a good idea.
