Linux It seems that I am in some sort of retro-mode. As Linux on the desktop is getting bigger and better, with more apps, more sleek looks (Galaxy, Keramik and Blue Curve for example) and more idiot proof, I am going onto simpler, more condensed stuff. The big distributions are nice, but I really do not need all the applications that come with them all the time.

If you want apt-get, just use straight Debian. Then "apt-get install (your wm here) ted sylpheed dillo ...etc" I have a AMD 400MHz running Debian with XFCE4 and it is more than usable - even speedy, so if you went even lighter with a 200MHz (say twm ;) just kidding) you should have a fast enough desktop.
