What I have in mind is a desktop environment similar to gnome, but I
do not know yet exactly what packages should be included. Now I am
trying to install firefox without x (using frame buffer), hopefully it
So, may be we should have at least:
Graphical web browser
Audio and Video:
And may be some games and utilities.
And for login may be use Qingy instead of getty? Once login, it should
fire up a "desktop" with menu of available software there.
