It is quite difficult to get a profound overview of the available desktop environments and window managers. To experience their look and feel in action without the hassle of permanently altering my existing system, I am currently searching for a way to try out most of the major ones without permanently installing them. When using Live CDs, this poses quite a hassle, because normally, the Live Medium of one distribution (or spin) only includes one Desktop Setup. So one would have to burn a new CD for each test.
Is there a distribution that ships a live medium providing many desktop environments?
My ideal compilation would contain most of the following.
- GNOME Shell
- one of fluxbox, openbox or blackbox
- a tiling window manager
