Wow. Thank you. I was hesitant to try KDE after reading about 4.x, but
XFCE has brought most of the snappiness back to my machine. The Chrome
bookmarks pop-up dialog and IntelliJ's smart code completion are still
slower than they were under F14, but faster than Gnome3. And it was SO
easy to install. I have done a lot with Fedora, but I have never
installed a second Window Manager. Just stuck with Gnome. Yeah
Fedora! Gee, now I might try IceWM just for giggles.
