Understood, should be fixed now, it should be a tiny thumbnail which takes you to the full size image when clicked.

I too have drifted. Gnome is not as productive as having direct icons of your most frequent programs in the panel (which I like to have at the top of the screen). So now running Jessie Stable pure (no nonfree or contrib), LXDE, booted frugally (like a liveCD, but on HDD) no changes preserved, (unless I flush them to disk)

Image

Frankly amazed. Openshot, blender, audacity, inkscape, recordmydesktop, devede, mplayer ... (for multimedia), Libre (full office suite), Evolution (mail, notes, appointments, calendar, contacts ..etc) .... and all working really well.

Also I've tweaked the initrd.img so that the main filesystem can be contained within a file filesystem that can be copied and run from a NTFS partition (read/write). I allocated a 8GB file filesysystem, but its only using around 3GB. Less than 1.5GB compressed. Also have a bootable USB ... so conceptually download the 1.5GB compressed filesystem file, uncompress it on either ext or ntfs and with a small USB (less than 60MB) as a boot USB ... boot it up and have a extensive desktop that provides most of the functions that I use/require. I also have single click options to load skype and masterpdfeditor ... but they're outside of pure Debian. I haven't tried installing backported Kodi as of yet.

Quick to boot and run, as changes are being written to memory rather than disk. But with the option to flush changes to disk if desired (so persistent across reboots).

Debian jessie (and a sprinkle of carefully selected backports) running tmux with mksh in the left-hand-side window, ranger at the top-right and htop in the bottom right corner:

We don't need no stinkin' GUI...

Yeah the only backports I use on my jessie installation is the mozila firefox-esr one. Since if I can get the latest release of an ESR stable firefox, why not?
Code: Select all
deb http://mozilla.debian.net/ jessie-backports firefox-esr

How I like it - dark and minimalist. This is my first Debian install, coming from Ubuntu then Mint. Debian was a bit more of a learning curve, but I'm very happy to be here.

Yep, Debian is more DIY, but it's worth it, the 'buntus are more like training wheels, and they have been known to add 'tweaks' (especially in browsers, this is why I switched to Pale Moon) to generate revenue, Canonical is a corporation, corporations love money. I occasionally make donations to FOSS projects that deserve it.

Openbox, tint2... yeah... that's it. Usually filled with tons and tons of windows. The grey area is outside monitor area, the right screen is flipped so it's 1024x1280, great for emails or reading pdfs or whatsnot.
