Which distro/window manager to use
I know this has been asked 1000 times, but yes, I have done my research and surprisingly am not a linux noob or anything like that, just have specific requirements.
Internet browser with flash, email, skype WITH webcam support.
Used on a 7 inch screen with an AMD LX800 500mhz cpu. (A wiped pepperpad3 to be exact) Hdd space shouldn't be an issue. Ram is at 256mb but I will probably change that to the GB.
I can do a bit of fiddling around to get it working but would like some idea where to start.
I like this pic, simple, no menus etc. Nice and refined.
My current thoughts are ubuntu server and then add a cutdown gui on afterwards. Their netbook edition seems good in theory but is designed from the ground up to work on 1.6hz atoms. Not the 500mhz I will have to play with.
Would prefer little menus and mainly icon based.
Please, give me your input. (Unless somebody knows the proper pepperpad firmware tucked away on a random server somewhere.)
