So for fun I threw together a Ubuntu Netbook remix style interface (though targeted at the OpenPandora console).
This is what I came up with using Fluid (FLTK's RAD tool). According to gmemusage, it uses 2-4 MBs based on the background you use. And probably less once I move the icons out of the app. Of course, it doesn't do anything yet, but I think it'll be a pretty cool interface compared with the ugly matchbox-desktop (9 MBs on my debian system without Background). P:<
(matchbox-keyboard killed Xorg when I killed it.
(Sorry matchbox devs... matchbox isn't actually ugly, it's just too fat for my tastes.
Background is from Cave Story.
