hi mike thanks for the email, interesting stuff. i looked at lxde but found
it lacking compared to xfce despite the low memory footprint. i am currently
working on a custom distro designed to be as minimal as possible. do you
know if it is possible to form such a system from a combination of xfce,
lxde and directfb ?

thanks again,
