Here is the results I got a few days ago on my wok PC.  My laptop is a
bit faster than than - I'll run it shortly and post the results...
I'm running the Clearlooks theme in my laptop.

-------------------[ Work PC ]----------------
I did so now on my PC. P4 2.2GHz with 1GB ram and integrated
ATI video card running Ubuntu 7.10 (32bit).

I couldn't believe the difference it makes when you switch between
themes. The exact same PC, just different themes!!  Here are my

28s - Custom (mixture of what I like)
21s - Bluecurve
26s - ClearLook
24s - Human
17s - Mist
43s - Crux

Wow, not all themes are created equal!  :-)
