He has fond memories of LIbranet 3. It was able to use the Sarge
repositories, so he was able to run his Libranet system until security
updates for Sarge ended and I then moved him on to PCLOS. I have never quite
been forgiven. :-(
He ran it on KDE, because I did, but I have to confess that it did boot a lot
faster. Just recently I dragged a client kicking and sreaming off Libranet
3, and coming back to it after so long it really did seem fast.
But yes, I am also considering IceWM.
So long as it boots fast and I can give him his half a dozen icons, he doesn't
mind what the desktop is. It is I who want it to be reasonably easy for me
to set that configuration up. And I must be able to access everything else
on the system via the keyboard. (Since there will only be the 6 or so icons
and I may need to run other things.)
