The title says it all actually. There might be one or two KDE apps that I might prefer to the Gnome alternative.
- I'm not afraid of having to install many KDE packages (libs, etc.) which might take considerable amount of disk space.
- I'm not afraid of having to use some additional packages (libs, etc.), probably meaning more CPU load and/or memory usage than its Gnome equivalent, when that application is running either.
- But I'm afraid installing a KDE application might entail some KDE software constantly being loaded and running in the background every time Ubuntu starts, even when that application is not being used.
So, I will very much appreciate an answer from people who really know and who really have experience on this subject.
