Yeah, but the problem is you're comparing apples and oranges to
determine the bottleneck.  If you want to know if XFCE performs better,
then you need to test it in the same environment.

Which either means a) using an XFCE live image built the same way as the
GNOME ones and doing your comparison there or b) installing GNOME onto
the nand from a yum repo and comparing _that_ to XFCE installed that
way.
