I need a Linux Virtual machine (running on Windows with Virtual Box), and I need it run a desktop such as Gnome. Because it is running on a Virtual machine on a not particulary powerful machine I require a version of Linux which is not too memory/cpu hungry.
I readup a little on this and decided to try Arch Linux as it advertised itself as lightweight and easy, but unfortunately it was not easy enough for me.
I setup a VirtualBox machine mounted the Installation ISO okay as described at https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Installing_Arch_Linux_from_VirtualBox
But then when it came to actually installing ArchLinux I was lost as https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Official_Arch_Linux_Install_Guide concentrates or real(non-virtual) installations and had far too many steps.
Is there a Linxu Distro which I can install with just a couple of commands that will be usuable in my virtual machine ?
