As background headphones music ... purrrfect.

OpenBSD cwm with a left screen gap ... use ctrl-alt-m to maximise windows (alt-tab to flip between them) ... works well IMO. https://youtu.be/9oTIsPe_x_g

Slackware VM - my 'testing ground' before things go bare metal. I don't use it as much as I used to, but it's nice to play around with.

OpenBSD-current running dwm, xterm, ksh & neofetch:

The status readout in the panel is showing the load average over the last minute, followed by the battery charge level and the date & time.

Here's the ~/.xinitrc:
Code: Select all
#!/bin/sh
xset s 300 # screensaver
while sleep 1; do xsetroot -name "$(uptime|awk '{gsub(",","");print $9}')  •  $(apm|awk '/Battery/{print $4}')  •  $(date +'%F  •  %T')"; done &
sh ~/.fehbg # wallpaper
exec dwm

I'm always happy to see your screen shots. Oh, how I would like to use openbsd, but I can not, because my nvidia card is not supported.

Neat 'trick' to get all sound sources merged ...

so for instance if you're recording the desktop then the recording will also record you mic and any videos/youtubes that you might be playing at the time.

I just love OpenBSD's sndio/OSS quality levels (and relative simplicity).

OpenBSD base + firefox-esr + ddclient (for dynamic dns to point fixed domain name to desktop PC's httpd server). Running cwm.

It is understandable, to me atleast, some like Raw & Dirty Linux / Unix style. Some others like Windows or MAC imitation. A matter of preferences as usual.

Spend little time looking at the desktop. Mostly launching programs via the key code and the first 2 or 3 characters of the program name fir ... for firefox for instance. Thereafter the cwm window manager is invisible, no window title, no window buttons ...etc. Mostly full screen per program, alt-tab between them. Less tendency to use xcalc or xedit myself as well, bc and vi instead. If you prefer more graphical switching, just install skippy-xd.

Fully security audited system that includes a more secure version of X (and httpd ...etc.). Only other program being firefox ... which is constantly under security review. Base + 50 libs (non base). Relatively few cases of potential bugs (where any single bug could open up a security vulnerability).

So more a case of what the programs look like (decorations). You can of course always load a pretty wallpaper as your desktop.

ruffwoof, what about the fonts?
can these be made to look as nice as, say, on ubuntu, with OpenBSD?

Yes, OpenBSD-current uses a recent fontconfig (and freetype) version, I use the same fonts.conf in both Debian & OpenBSD (with Win10 fonts) and they both look the same.

I'll edit this with a scrot later.

Wasn't until after I'd uploaded the above image that I noticed the screen grab command didn't get recorded, hence the black square box. That aside the default fonts in OpenBSD are reasonable/good. I just use the 9MB installation ramdisk image to install OBSD and pretty much leave the default (secure) config as-is, other than pulling in my own .Xdefaults, .xinitrc and .cwmrc config files. I haven't used Ubuntu, so can't say what the comparison might be like, things like Ubuntu upgrade causing some PC's to be bricked (or requiring firmware re-installation) has kept me away from ever desiring to try it out.

Edit: Head_on_a_Stick posted as I was typing up my post. Whilst Head_on_a_Stick is tracking --current I personally track --release. I don't compile anything, just use pkg_add (similar to apt-get), for updates I use M:tier's openup (similar to running apt-get update). Installation takes around 5 minutes (at boot prompt boot a bsd.rd i.e. ramdisk file) and mostly just pressing Enter. That's to bare metal (full PC/HDD installation). New release every 6 months. Whilst I could use the Upgrade option (takes around the same amount of time), personally I reinstall freshly as I keep my data files outside of the OBSD system files (on another OBSD headless box that we use as a family server). I do also activate the inbuild httpd web server and associate that to a dynamic dns domain name, so I can be 'called' by others from anywhere. httpd is a cut down apache like web server, easy to set up/use (and secure).
