It's been a _long_ time since I posted. The only thing that even make me want to post was aaronl's comments about GNOME (and KDE I would guess, given that he's so against using memory..)

I really wish I could come up with some comment that make aaronl realize how inflammatory/silly he sounds. He quotes numbers about how terrible memory consumption is in GNOME apps, then turns right around and states that he knows the numbers are inaccurate -- beyond that, he's makes the statement that he's not even trying to _be_ accurate.


I wrote Gabber. I've had my own concerns about memory consumption (X-Virge can vouch for that :)). Fact of the matter is tho, that the GNOME libs provide some great functionality. They do it in a modular manner and overall in a fairly clean way. I've considered removing GNOME stuff from Gabber, but on review I've found that there's just too much good functionality -- I'd wind up with an ugly client that nobody would use, and all for the sake of having one less dependency. No thanks.
