Re: New Debian Derivative



Hi Paul,

When I say lighter I meant having less packages/services which will need less resource on the system to run the OS. I may agree with your that all this can be done with debianpureblends.

BUT what if I really want to go with a completely new branded OS ? Can you guide me in that direction please.

Sounds like something you can do entirely within Debian using the
Debian Pure Blends idea:

Debian has multiple desktop environment and window managers, is the
one you are likely to choose in Debian yet?

I'm not sure what you mean by lighter but maybe you would like to join
the Debian teams packaging LXDE, Xfce or awesome?
