Basic article, but might be of interest to anyone who has never tried 
alternative desktops in Linux - maybe just used the Gnome that comes standard 
with Ubuntu.  Its written by a Ubuntu user but of course any desktop works 
with any distro.

The resource consumption data is quite interesting.  My impression is that KDE 
(not listed obviously) is more resource intensive than Gnome, but I haven't 
seen this documented.
