I've been trying out Cassandra for several weeks now and, like many, I'm impressed!
Has anyone ever thought of creating a version of Linux Mint based on Icewm, instead of Gnome?
I've been following the developments of the Enlightment and Xfce versions with much interest, but from what I understood, Icewm is even lighter on computer resources, promising an even swifter OS, both on new and older hardware. From what I've seen the lack of eye candy, that used to be an Icewm problem, has been abundantly solved.
My personal interest is in low power "green" computing, using small, power efficient, fanless systems, but without losing the user friendliness and capabilities of a modern distro.
Would anyone be interested in looking into this, to see if this "IceMint" idea would be possible? I'm just an end user, trying to build such version of Mint would be way above my capabilities
Perhaps the upcoming Xfce version would be a good starting point?
Or maybe Icewm could be just an option inside the Xfce linux Mint?
Or maybe I'm just daydreaming...
