If the window manager overloads a 2.4ghz dual core CPU with 4GB RAM, I'd say one needs "bleeding edge" to run it ;-) (I can't say anything about post-4.6 releases of KDE, but even with just the panel and two Konqueror windows open, KWin from 4.6 would overload my CPU when I would push Alt+Tab, and it would take several minutes to actually switch the windows; of course, I don't know how well it would perform now on 4.7 or 4.8, I keep hearing it's been improving)
