I don't want to drown the user in choices; the whole reason for a Live
disk like this is to let the user get started doing stuff, and not  
have to
take time picking window managers and other programs.
The wm should be as small as possible for faster load times.
Blackbox or any other small wm will be fine.
Don't forget that it runs from a CD/DVD disk, and these are  
hopelessly slow,
especially when it comes to loading applications from them.
