This is a short story on my dabblings with Ubuntu 8.04 and LXDE in a VM (128MB RAM, 3GB HD).

I just wanted to see how lightweight a distro could be created that was easy(-ish) to use.

Hopefully, the final result will be a pretty good usable base to add to.

Just follow the menu links at the top for a description of how to reproduce my steps…

Click on Start to see where I began…

I think you'll be pleased with the final result.

NB: For a look at an Ubuntu 8.10 (Intrepid) based system, look here.
