Re: Lightweight XFCE distros out there

here's a xfce puppy.. I am not a puppy linux user, but some like it. there are sure some more. check the puppy linux website. they come in a lot of different builds based on different distros.

there is Linux Mint Debian with xfce as well. not lightweight-lightweight, but it ran well on older hardware.

zenwalk was pretty light if I remember right.

Re: Lightweight XFCE distros out there

I would just do a debian netinstall with the DE/WM of your choice. pretty dang thin. use wheezy/backports if you want newer software (I'm using kernel 3.2 and iceweasel 20 alpha on debian + openbox netinstall myself  big_smile )
