my main machine is a pII running hardy, mostly doing vnc. i don't even use
xfce4 (the xubuntu window manager) other than xfce4-mixer (volume control).
a bit of .twmrc hacking and i'm happy enough with twm. low overhead. when
i do fire up xfce4-mixer it's amazing how much memory it grabs. could use
alsamixer i suppose. after even the minimal xubuntu install i go and remove
a slew of packages, then add what i actually need. why hardy? it has
drivers for the pII mobosound. those drivers dropped away after hardy. and
fortunately it's LTS.
