This contribution is not discussing the relative merits of various

At about 16:00 UTC on June 19, I did an 'osc update' of the Live CD
project and used 'osc build' commands to build the resulting Gnome and
KDE 64-bit Live CD images.

Both images built without error, and both booted with qemu-kvm. As
discussed earlier, neither image will fit on a standard 80 minute/700 MB
CD. The KDE version is 738 MiB and the Gnome one is 742 MiB, thus they
could be burned to a 90 minute/800 MB blank as long as the user has
suitable blanks and burning program.
Note that you build the unprofiled CD, which is much larger - the
profiled ones are below 700MB now.

The Gnome CD boots without problems using the standard 512 MB RAM
available with qemu-kvm (no swap space). With no swap space available,
the KDE version needs roughly 784 MB (712 MB is not enough).
The KDE one is *really* really bad as KDE creates tons of data in the
filesystem - which is in RAM. This is most likely due to the great akonadi
