This is slightly offtopic, but semi relevent.

GNOME apps seems to be slower, partly because of the GTK themes. If you
use a pixmap based theme resizing or moving windows can at times show
the individual elements of the window being drawn. Not REALLY slowly,
but noticable enough. This even occurs on a fast machine (450 PII, 256M
ram, G200, MTRR initailised).

KDE 'themes' tend to be simple color themes rather than
the more complex image based ones.

The apps themselves may not be slower but  they are percieved to be
because of the speed they are drawn onto the screen.

I now there was talk recently of removing Imlib from the GNOME
libraries for the (better/faster ?) GdkPixBuf stuff.

Will this include the gtk theme engines as well ?? 

Might this improve the percieved 'speed' of the apps.
