Yes, it was me who did Exe (Exe Gnu/Linux). Exe is still regularly 
maintained and has been refined considerably (although is still 
"experimental") since I posted details some time back. I have still not 
seen another TDE/Debian live build.

Exe is based on Squeeze and defaults to a "light" TDE. It has installers 
for hard disk and pendrive (and a remaster utility). English (UK and US) 
and Spanish locale/language support are built-in.

However, legally and ethically, I can't include non-GPL stuff. It is not 
difficult to add from debian-multimedia or official Debian non-free; 
<> tells you how to get wireless working.
