LXDE is openbox pre-configed with a file manager, panel, menu etc. it isn't nearly as tightly integrated as the other des, that one of the things that makes it good

Not really. Most distros probably ship DE that way, but Arch does a pretty good job of modularising KDE.

true, arch does a pretty good job of letting you set it up. the kde packages of most other distros really suck, and the packages of gnome not too far behind.

i disagree
if not kde, i think gnome 3 has done a pretty good job

anyway, I'm going to dual boot my machine with fedora 18 prerelease, on btrfs if I can. its going to be my 'bleeding edge' system while debian testing will remain my stable. I considered arch, but the truth is after using fedora for awhile I have to say I like yum better then apt or pacman. installing the LXDE spin, which should be the easiest of the bunch to tear down (I wish they had a minimal cd, but what ever) I even considered rawhide but I don't think I'm ready for that! to anyone with the knowledge, if I install the fedora bootloader will it pick up debian or will I have to add it? if so I'll likley skip that bit and add fedora in debian

IMPORTANT NOTE TO THOSE INTERESTED IN TRYING PRERELEASE

the bug report tells us one of the current RC bugs is 18 is that unless you select custom partitioning anaconda fill format THE ENTIRE DISK. just wanted to say this so no one who sees this and wants to try 18 will kill there install because of me
post #435 of 4043
really, thanks for this info
i almost did this once while installing peppermint
but due to power cut it i didnt start the process, later found out i was about to format the entire disk!!

You should see Debian in the fedora boot loader.

Just what is "oodles" of RAM? I mean in Kubuntu (which everyone says is the worst) RAM usage is (with the other "integral parts") between 600MB and 800MB. That's still at least 400MB less than the least I've had windows go on boot with Aero and everything running (1.2GB).
