I d/l and ran Olive in Qemu...can't really tellyou much about how it would run in RAM but here are my quick impressions:
-I like the Enlightenment WM...it is laid out well and offers different menus for left-click and right-click on the workspace
-The application selection is minimal, one app per need
-Runs quick in Qemu, even Firefox 'seems' to run a little quicker than DSL but I did no real timing so it might be just me
-The only thing I don't like about the way the WM is setup is if you minimize an application it disappears. I thought maybe it was being closed but it is possible to bring it back up by a left-click, select Windows and then see the minimized apps. Not the best way in my opinion.
-Also, it looks like there are some bugs when it comes to displaying various dialog boxes in firefox where the OK & Cancel buttons are masked...hard to explain and they work but some work needs to be done in this are.
All in all not a bad little distro but over twice as lard as DSL without an ability to add apps and I haven't tested out whether any user configurations can be saved.
