Re: [vox-tech] Converting to Kubuntu

Quoting Peter Jay Salzman (p@dirac.org):

Chris _is_ spot-on with that.  Whenever installing any *buntu variant, I
always favour the "alternate disk" for that purpose, because its
ncurses-based installer, which as Chris says is good ol'
debian-installer itself, is faster (partly on account of RAM), gives
better access to options, and more robustly deals with hardware and
other problems.

You might want to look at Xfce4.  Like GNOME, gtk+-based, but somewhat

Me, I personally just disable session management, install Window Maker,
and use that.  DEs just don't do anything for me, so "none of them,
please" suits me.
