LXer: ROX Desktop provides light, quirky alternative to GNOME and KDE

Published at LXer:

The ROX Desktop is a lightweight alternative to GNOME or KDE built around the ROX-Filer file manager. The project's name is an abbreviation of "RISC OS on X." The ROX Desktop's performance is reminiscent of IceWM, and it's noticeably faster opening programs than GNOME or KDE. However, its speed comes at the expense of a needlessly redundant default configuration, and some users may balk at some of the assumptions its design makes about how they prefer to work.

ROX dekstop is very cool. Icewm with Rox-filier flies even on very low end systems.

There is even a Debian repo so all you need to do is use apt to install.
