[ ARM ] Desktop

Hello guys,
I have seen some serious work here!! smile

I need to partner with someone to build a Devuan ARM desktop version..
Is there any one interested?

I was mostly focused in { Fluxbox, Enlightment, EDE }, and themes for it..

Why not lxde or lxqt?
Its because a lot of ARM hardware has 1GB Ram Available..

So the Idea would be to Create a Lean Desktop to "fit almost them all", so it has to be max around 100MB, and without big Applications, that alone consumes all Ram memory..
Even tough that a browser will need to be provided( and here, to have functionality you need a decent browser, which entails big amount of resources..), the Idea is to have some constraints were it makes sense..


Can Any One provide his thoughts about something like this?
One Place that I have as the first reference was by fsmithred, in This Thread

I would like to have more suggestions, also from you guys smile

I think a lot of users just flash the devuan base and then install a wm/desktop, if they want one at all.

If I had a bunch of ARM boards lying around, I could see myself writing a tool for creating a small, flashable image.  That way, I could control those parameters before I even boot the board.  And, the image would be exactly what I want, not what you think I want.

The stali project is also worth looking into.  Its vision honed in on Raspberry Pis specifically and static-linked libraries.  I'm not sure if that's in the scope of your vision, but I thought it was a great idea.

Keep us posted on your progress.
