a lot. On Ubuntu it uses twice as much as Gnome2, on Fedora it is similar.

BUT: it can be configured to work very streamlined. On Suse 11.2 I  only 
disabeled the 3d-effects and the indexing and downloaded a lighter 
Theme. Now it feels like XFCE in terms of performance.
I also have zero trouble using Dolphin or Konqueror or Kate under XFCE 
in Fedora. As of now I have Mozilla, Dolphin and Jack and MHW up and 
running in XFCE/Fedora14 and it uses 410MB memory.

Quite OK on a box with 2GB RAM.

btw.: here on my Thinkpad I have only but 2GB installed since I do not 
feel the need to have much more. I can edit Ardour-Projects with around 
40-50 channels and dozens of plug ins and record from guitarix at the 
same time.
