I have been using SolydX for several months now, and run Claws-Mail and Firefox without any trouble.

It is a trimmed-down derivative of Debian with the XFCE light-weight window manager, 32 and 64 bits versions available, needs relatively little memory and HD space, boots and stops very quickly (compared to the KDE Mageia I ran before) and I am very pleased with it.http://solydxk.com/


PS Make sure you get SolydX and not SolydK, the latter is the KDE version, and KDE is a memory and ressources hog.
