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.
