Need help choosing a desktop manager
I need help on deciding a desktop manager for a small PC our student society uses for a web server. Its a 833 MHz Pentium 3 with 384 megs of ram. We get around 400 page hits a day and run apache + PHP + MySql. I have only used KDE and Gnome as DMs but I donít know how they will perform on the given hardware so I was thinking of using XFCE or fluxbox (no experience with them) my questions are.
1) Would this hardware be able to run KDE 3.40 + the web server (without KDE causing much overhead)?
2) Which "lighter" DM is easier to configure and wouldn't be much of a hassle to get running.
PS: I am thinking of running Debian (sid) as the distro. Any comments regarding the distro will also be welcomed.
