Yes, thanks Slavek! I am a great admirer of your work. However, I've tried 
most of the live CDs (at least, the 'buntus & Debian): 

From the list on that page, I've tried: 
Exe Gnu/Linux
PCLinuxOS (external)
PCLinuxOS (internal)
Slax with Trinity
Ubuntu Nightly
Ubuntu Releases
Ubuntu (thirdparty)
I tried every Ubuntu TDE release from 10.04 through 16.04. 

14.04 and 16.04 worked pretty well, but I still ended up having problems. 
(System freezes up, or network problems, or sudden crashes ... the list is 
long, but my method is to get rid of non-TDE stuff, or to disable some 
configurations in KDE, Gnome, etc.) I described this in more detail in other 

They got better and better, but thus far do not work as well as my taking the 
scenic route when installing Debian and then TDE.
