Have you heard of Puppy Linux before? Barry, the guy who does it has
been toying around with the idea of making a way to convert an ubuntu
install to Puppy style. I think that would be the best place to go to
do that. JWM is much lighter than Lubuntu, but it needs to be manually
configured in Ubuntu to even have a panel and window decorations(Puppy
has some really incredible scripts that update the menu, and change the
WM theme). It also runs inside memory and they have scripts to 'trim
the fat' from packages. It can run very fast on very old hardware.
I might be worth the effort to get involved with bringing Puppy's
goodies to Ubuntu, so you can make a Lubuntu lighter with a few scripts,
or you can even use JWM if you have an old computer. I always keep a
copy of Puppy around, it generally weighs in at around 200MB for a
decent install with some extras.
Just a thought...
