Ice is *the* way to go for speed and bandwidth conservation. Mind you I'm not
saying I think everyone needs to go to ice and everything else sucks....but in
implementations where your concerned with your server/network load you should
run icewm rather than gnome or kde. I think gnome has actually gotten a little
better but still in the whole scheme of things I would rank bandwidth hogs by:
KDE (biggest), gnome (not as big), iceWM (light), iceWM Lite (super light.
