i am perfectly happy with debian (in fact. it was a major point when  
purchaisng the fr that debian will run on it, not some home made linux  
what i was looking for was a more finger/stylus friendly and maybe more  
econimical (memory- and cpuwise) gui.
since somebody asked for reports, i posted my experiences.

the most interesting thing was/is the tabbed gui, like the eeepc comes  
with, which is delivered by lxlauncher.
lxlauncher in turn does not depend on lxde -- so i installed it again and  
started with xfce.
imagine my surprise when it came up: fonts were ok! still no way to  
configure anything, but excpet fonts there's not much to configure anyway  
(the tabs could be bigger, easier to hit with a finger).
i need to figure out, how the apps relate to the tabs; probably some entry  
in the .desktop file.
