Not much.  Mozilla.  Maybe a dozen rxvts, some with ssh sessions.
Emacs.   GDB w/ Insight.  The Ecos Configtool.

Going by top, mozilla is taking over 115 megs of ram.  The next largest
is emacs at 12.  Of course, X is listed as the largest still, but that
has something to do with video memory mapping, and doesn't reflect
what's actually used.  GDB is 8 megs.  Various gnome-ish things take up
some fairly large chuck here and there as well.
