I, unlike Saidin, have mixed feelings about JWM`s inclusion, while the work roberts put in to it should not be ignored; i find that  after useing it in puppy linux, all it does is waste space. Calling it useable is like calling windows 1.0 useable, it`s feesably useable but overall it lacks that promised useability.

also in addition to the promised ease of use for Windows users, it does lack in the UI department, Saidin is correct when he states that the Windows UI is terrible, it is, so why have such a terrible UI, even if it is to act as a crutch, to those windows users? In the end, after playing with it, it is a nice WM but others can be made to do the same and achive better results.

This is another interesting thing for DSL (maybe as a extension):

From :

What is Equinox Desktop Environment ?
Equinox Desktop Environment (shortly EDE) is small desktop environment, built to be simple and fast. It is based on modified FLTK library (called extended FLTK or just eFLTK).

Comparing to other desktop environments, EDE is much faster and smaller in memory space (EDE's window manager use less memory than xterm).

Features and support:

   * desktop with icons and wallpaper;
   * Xft font anti-aliasing;
   * taskbar with configurable menu, cpu status, easy keyboard switching;
   * theming;
   * localization;

Hmm, looks alright, no idea how it stacks up resource-wise against fluxbox or JWM.  Might be worth a look.

Some of us have played with EDE and while it has alot of potential, there is still alot of work to be done with it before it becomes a well functioning WM. I just prefer flux and think it's the best. If someone want a windows look add wmdrwawer for a 'start' button.

Everyone has an opinion, that's mine. :)

When I loaded up RC2 it still did not recognize my AT&T wireless adapter and load the atheros drivers like DSL-1.5 does

It would be most helpful if you would specify the module(s) that are loaded with 1.5
