Maxxed Out Distro + X enviroment + window manager
Hey my situation is actually kind of similiar to the post I've seen seaching through the fourms. But I need some more suggestions towards what I'm trying to do.
What I'm trying to do is install a distro that has good support towards software/hardware but takes up little RAM and CPU. Once I find that, I want to put XFce on it because I've heard it takes up less resources than GNOME and KDE. I am also intrested in window managers... I have read up on it but not sure which one would suite me best. I am looking for something that is good performance wise but still has a nice look to it.
I've tried Gentoo but things have not worked out so well getting ndiswrapper on my computer... very hard to explain lol... Gentoo was looking good because it was only using a 100MB RAM and an average of 0.1% on both my CPUs. That's with GNOME... So XFce should be faster.
I am open to Distro's, XFce or better enviroment(balence of performance and looks) and a nice window manager combination.
