    None that I know of.

    As it's a side project and still experimental I don't think any of the mainstream distros will include it in the immediate future.

    The problem is hardware, *nix has to have backwards compatability with older and unusual hardware.

    An add-on desktop manager is easy enough to add to your existing working system, but it may not work well with your hardware.

    Check the main site out, installation and everything else you need...

    *nix isn't supposed to be "one click" easy, it's meant to be fast and effective.. pretty isn't our main aim. I think a desktop manager that is as hardware hungry as beryl is a move in the wrong direction.. I prefer to use cpu cycles for more important things than pretty...

    Sorry.. not a hope really. It may just about work, but needs at least a 2 ghz cpu and 1 gig of ram..

    On that machine you will find debian etch will work pretty well, It won't crash anyway, and will feel a lot faster than xp.. as long as you keep a track of open applications.
