Oops. Forgot to add in my the number of Bash Shells and other running console
applications here. However, Xorg using 20-30MB is still seems like a huge
amount -- but isn't some of this off loaded to video ram?

Anyways, the man reason for posting was just to note the memory resource
difference between DWM and XFCE4. I still prefer DWM over XFCE4 as I can
easily manage it using keyboard.
