The default desktop is GNOME + Mozilla + OpenOffice.org + Evolution. 
gnome-*, evolution, mozilla, ooffice. 

Fedora Core also includes KDE (most of /usr/bin/k*), Epiphany, XFCE, and
other choices.

Startup/login times are the most visible latencies, but also repaint
(during opaque window resize for example, or opening a menu).
