I read that Linux Debian's Xfce has thin and light weight environment which is best in resource consumption, considering my system configuration.
Can I get these in Lisa.
How often do I have to upgrade and Is that upgrade has any support in the forum, then probably I would try my hand with Linux Debian
My system config: Intel Pentium M, Processor: 1.73 GHz,
1.24 GB RAM. 40GB
Say if I choose crunchbang or Salix latest versions. What do I miss out from the latest linux mint debian or lisa or ubuntu latest ones.
These DTE are lighter because some functionalities are removed. Another question is how about drivers compatibility, I am assuming as a beginner that features, driver compatibility etc are OS specific and not DTE.
Can I easily replace the existing ubuntu partition with Salix or Crunchbang ..

There is so difference between Ubuntu9.10 install and Salix Lxde.
Ubuntu prompts how I install, I choose manual and point to the mount I have created for linux and choose the file system and instruct to format .. and all set .. every thing fine.
Salix too asks these but in a different format but Salix does not seem to create the root file or other necessary information needed for grub to work.
I am not sure what to do.. I will try Slackware when the server is up, It looks like it is down now. I raised this issue with Salix forums and waiting for reply.
As of now I am back on 9.10 ubuntu without net and working windows.
I just installed #! Openbox this last weekend and I must say I am very impressed. I wanted to take the time to mention a few things that I was most impressed with.
1.) I have installed many linux distros. Crunch Bang was the first one that recognized my Broadcom 4318 wireless card in my laptop with absolutely NO configuring whats so ever. No downloading drivers and no extractions with b43-fwcutter.
2.) I liked the start up script on first boot that walks you through the updates giving you the opportunity to except or not except updates as well as proprietary software such as cups and java.
3.) I have become a big fan of Conky. Crunch Bang makes configuring your Conky very easy.
4.) I understand that in the grand scheme of things, Crunch Bang is a relatively new distro and the developers are to be commended in getting things right early on.
I realize I do have a lot to learn with this distro. I have gotten used to using pacman, synaptics, RPM so just need to know what package manager Crunch Bang uses and how to use it. Look forward to seeing what else this OS has to offer.
GREAT JOB #! TEAM!!!!
All the best,
But a question, why do you suggest me a older version of crunchbang, did they removed b43-fwcutter from latest versions.
