Having read the posts and looked at some more information I think OpenBSD is the one for me right now. I can always change later.

Now, my other question is what is the difference between a Windows Manager like the *boxes and a Desktop Environment like Xfce? My understanding is that the DE's are more like Windows and Gnome, but I'm really at a loss for how WM's compare to that. Is a WM just a collection of windows? Do you do all the interaction through terminal? I'll continue looking for information online, but any hints/links are greatly appreciated.
