I came from x86/Mandrake to x86_64/Fedora, and I'm going back to MDK as soon as that 2005LE DVD iso hits public mirrors (or CDs). My 1GHz VIA C3 box running Mandrake w/KDE responds faster than my 2.5GHz A64 with Fedora w/Gnome. Just pressing ALT+F2 in Gnome on that box incurs a 2-3 second delay before I can type half of the time. News like this just reinforces my desicion.
(Also, my 2.5ghz A64 spanks my old 2.8ghz P4 all day long in throughput, but I sure miss the smoothness/responsivenss of the P4's hyperthreading! Bring on the dual-core.)
