Anything that works with Ubuntu should work. There might be some quirks 
around permissions and the only integration that might be missing is 
desktop icons and menu items. If you switch to Virtual Terminal 1 and 
login, take a look at the syslog and see if you find the errors.

We do not actively support additional desktops. If you want to go that 
far we suggest installing your favorite Ubuntu flavor and using our 
scripts to help you install the applications you want.
