crunchbang too, does not run on ppc (although i think it might be 
possible to get there by first installing debian wheezy and then adding 
the crunchbang repositories (but i'm not sure).

What i would do is this:

A) Debian Jessie (but downgrading the kernel to 3.2-04 until the dead 
sound problem in the newer kernels is not solved) with LXDE and the 
substitute openbox as windowmanager by jwm.

B) Lubuntu 14.04 (also downgrade the kernel) and also substiting openbox 
by jwm.

In both cases i've a working system with, among others, pcmanfm-desktop 
daemon, polipo, tor&vidalia, 2 conky processes (one for the weather 
forecast and one for systeminfos) xscreensaver, keepassx, blueman and 
autostart thunderbird to tray with around 200mb after finishing the boot 

In both cases i removed nearly all gnome related packages i found, which 
will delete also network manager and (gnome) bluetooth. As network tool 
i use ceni, which is commandline but well guided and easy to use - AND
