In the sense of resource usage is what I mean when I say heavy weight.
While KDE is quite popular, there are probly (litterally) hundreds of
window managers that will run under X, so saying "Everyone uses N window
manager" is going to be patently false.
You'll only need one X server - what you're looking at having multiple
versions of is the window manager. That's what runs over top of X to
provide the style.
