I am afraid that I can't answer on that. Generally, it depends on
the features being available.
Maybe you are looking towards memory consuption. Lemme answer shortly:
I don't care about that. ;o)

Yeah. As stated above, more plugins - more features - more power needed.
Plugins do also mean more instability due to API changes and security
There are always PROs and CONs.
today, after doing 'yum upgrade' on a freshly installed
(Fefora15/XFCE) I noticed that after the user has already been
to one WiFi network, attempt to connect to another network will remove
nm-applet from the Notification Area of XFCE. The applet will never
reappear, neither for the current user nor any new user accounts.
I did another install to verify this bug, and observed exactly the same
issue. When running nm-applet from a terminal window, it complains
missing /usr/share/libnm-gtk/wifi.ui file and crashes with
fault. Haven't had any similar issues with Fedora15/XFCE so far.
Any clues? This bug is extremely annoying, since it locks out end users
from all WiFi connectivity. Are there any workaround for this?
