Well, some of those I tried adding to a Debian x86 install worked

Well, I want something that works well, with good apps of high quality
that work on as many machines as possible, and I want that as soon as
I won't be evaluating Activities myself (I am too ignorant for that,
so will follow other people's wisdom) and will not be fixing them
unless they are already esteemed and the fix is trivial.
I already have a SLB 386 clone of the Trisquel Etiona Sugar Toast
selection, so the only other thing I have in mind at this point is to
look at the Sugarizer and Fedora Spin selections to make a kind of
union of the three sets.
