Linux With Linux traditionally coming in many, many flavours, a common call among some Linux fans - but mostly among people who actually do not use Linux - is to standardise all the various distributions, and work from a single "one-distribution-to-rule-them-all". In a recent interview, Linus Tovalds discarded the idea, stating that he thinks "it's something absolutely required!"

So I guess you haven't tried any of the distros based on E17 (Enlightenment) or XFCE.

If all that fails, run Gentoo and examine /usr/portage/x11-wm and /usr/portage/*-base. With Gentoo you can pick your own combination! Although I have to admit, its E17 support is not the greatest.
