For some time now, and for work as well as home office & DAW, I install the
absolutely minimum debian (not even the desktop initially), install mingetty
and set it up for auto login and single user - there is no one else going to
use my machines!
I then use apt-get to install synaptic, openbox and rox-filer. This
automagically installs all the desktop stuff I *actually* need and none of the
I set up sudo for synaptic, halt and reboot (and other specialised stuff
depending on the intended environment).
For the basic desktop I finally create a .profile containing just startx, and
a .config/openbox/autostart containing rox -S &
One reboot and I'm into a fully functional minimum desktop, after which I use
synaptic to pull in whatever else I need, depending on what the machine is
going to be used for - I compile specialist stuff of course.

Say you have a poem and I have a tune.
Exchange them and we can both have a poem, a tune, and a song.
