Thanks for the mention! My problem at the moment is getting distros I've installed to boot from the hard drive; that's why I'm Puppy-only for the time being.

Looks like a great concept though and you've clearly put a lot of work into it, so I may have a look at it later on.

Fair enough Robert, and sorry for the misunderstanding (I now see that you'd said you were trying it as opposed to it being your creation). You did a good job with the desktop anyway.

Just looking at that list and seeing Refracta mentioned, I think it's worth saying that it's a pretty good distro in its own right and it runs well on older computers.

Trying out Bee Free at the moment, a 64-bit free software distro based on Mint and with Cinnamon as its window manager. So far it's working well.

I've just installed the latest version of Solus (2017.04.18.0). With this release Ikey seems to be getting away from the Debian roots of earlier versions of Solus (apt-get doesn't work in Solus, for example), but there is a software centre that allows you to install additional programs and which works well; I was able to install midnight commander without any problems.

I downloaded the Budgie version, which has a nice spring theme to it but Budgie itself is limited in the ways in which you can manipulate windows with the mouse (maybe I've been spoilt by window managers like fvwm and windowmaker). Probably a good option though for someone moving from Windows who doesn't want any necessary complication.
