What is difference between fedora 15 GNOME and fedora 15 LXDE except their interface.(I think their is no difference except their interface).
GNOME 3 interface is much better than LXDE but it uses a lot of system resources.
If I have F15 GNOME then can i switch from GNOME to LXDE without reinstalling it if yes then how?

If you want to keep GNOME.. to install LXDE..

at the terminal (command prompt)
su - will ask you for your root password
yum install lxde* - install all of lxde desktop
log out
at the login screen - there's an option to change to the lxde desktop.
login again..

viola.. lxde desktop
