    Depends on your skill sets and needs I guess. I run this on dual core 4 gig ram setup@biker:~
    Code:
    $ apt-cache policy fluxbox
    fluxbox:
      Installed: 1.3.2-4
      Candidate: 1.3.2-4
      Version table:
     *** 1.3.2-4 0
            500 http://ftp.us.debian.org/debian/ testing/main amd64 Packages
            100 /var/lib/dpkg/status

    Hello

    I think that would depend on your own personal preferences and what exactly you are looking for when you say "desktop", such as a lightweight but full desktop environment versus a simple window manager. You can find both along with some info about them, here:

    Window Managers for X
