Yes, I've heard great things about IceWM
Loren, here's an interesting aside, re: XP. I had been trying to burn a DVD and was making coaster after coaster with Win 7 CD-BURNER freeware. I still have a HDD loaded with XP for an old laptop. Swapped out the 7 for XP and used NERO and the copies ran through without a hitch.
Agreed, but have noticed a marked difference with respect to device drivers / device recognition between distros. The Ubuntu-based OS's readily recognized wifi, sound and webcam devices.
I agree, esp for Debian per se. AntiX is not so frustrating, to me, at least.The Debian-based distros are maddening, particularly older WiFi minicards. But yes, Windows and hardware manufacturers have been eradicating device drivers from their support websites.
AFAIK it's not a viable option with GNU/Linux. Besides, the ISOs are sub-par, IMO.Use NERO, perhaps?
