Ubuntu or CentOS as a base to Fluxbox?
I've recently started to like Fluxbox as my window manager and am wondering what would make a good base distro to use on it. I like both Ubuntu minimal and CentOS minimal (installs with no GUI or DE) and have them both in VMs with Fluxbox. I personally do not see any major differences between them (yum vs apt, software available, hardware detection) but I was wondering what are the main differences, if any, between these two in this situation, like is one less heavy, easier to configure via command line, etc...?

I have use Debian Net Install... then go from there... install xorg, then openbox. It is as good a place to start as any... never considered using Debian, or CentOS... but since I work with them strictly from a full screened VM... I am going to give those two a try, and see how my basic net install works! Thank you for the suggestion... even though you didn't really make one.

Lightweight Debian with Fluxbox as programming environment - YouTube

AntiX can be set to debian stable if so wished during the install process where I am pretty sure Ubuntu is based on Debian Unstable.
But if rpm stable is what trips your trigger
Linky or Linky
But if wanting Ubuntu
