It's not entirely rubbish. If you run older low-spec machines, using lighter 
weight WMs does make a difference. It is not true or fair to say that GNOME 
and KDE are 'really bad', however. If you have a fairly modern box, it 
doesn't make much difference what your favourite Desktop Environment is.

It might be better for the promotion of Musix not to be so disparaging about 
other distros. The project sounds interesting, but the wording of the 
announcement has put me off a bit.
