> Anyone else have a fave distro/desktop combo?I've been using Debian/Fluxbox for years now. I'm very happy with it
because it mostly stays out of my way.
- window overlapping
- scroll wheel on background to change virt desktops
- right click on background for full debian menu (with personal
favorites on the first list)
I use separate virtual desktops for Iceweasel, Claws Mail, and Pidgin,
and then have ~7 more filled with RXVT windows.
I've heard of other similar options, like ION, but I've never felt
compelled to try them.
+1 for Fluxbox, though I haven't installed it in years. Especially if you want something other than the Windows or OS X paradigm. I have used and liked AfterStep as well.
