Jessie with twm + yad. twm no icons, just iconmanager (where windows can be 'iconified', restored, closed) colour matched to programs title colours/borders.

First button in windows title reveals the (yad) side panel and iconmanager.

In addition to buttons panel the volume slider (scroll-wheel or mouse slide), alarm and diary are all yad scripts.

Hmmm... that's a bit far off the expected impact zone. A North Korean missile instead?

it's always the same desktop, just different backgrounds.

That's right up there with people who install vanilla Debian/whatever DE, change the wallpaper, and "show off" their desktop -- which has, apparently, been a trend since 2006.

That's not the case. My desktop is not standard. Apart from the wallpaper, I use the Clean-Ice Marble desktop theme, Smooth-X-Dark-NG icons, pcc_kazloru window theme, Conky with mpd configuration (which in some pictures isn't playing so you don't see it).Clean-Ice Marble is a dark desktop theme, but it has several layers of dark so it's not all the same color. The pcc-kazloru window theme has been modified by me to have the close button be red instead of black like the others. I placed the icons on the left side of the window (you can do that effortless with XFCE, just drag and drop), because that's what I was used to when I switched from Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx (Gnome2 desktop) to Debian with XFCE. Currently, three of my desktop systems run Debian Sid, two run Testing and all three of my servers run Stable (they have no desktop).
Here you can see a detail from my desktop (the XFCE configuration windows):

Nice, but have you heard of thumb nails ? They make it nicer.
Please learn to thumbnail images
It is not just you, there are several others that just refuse to use thumb nails, ..... and it is not that difficult.

I made this just fooling around, Debian 7 on a VM hosted by Openbsd,
Image
Used : https://ezgif.com/resize to resize it.

A script that makes creating a thumbnail easier:
Code: Select all
for file in *png; do
    new_file=`echo $file | sed 's/.png$//'`
    convert -resize 25% $file $new_file-tmb.png
    #jpegoptim ... $new_file-tmb.png
#mv *.JPG-tmb.jpg tmb
scp *.png me@mystoragesite.org:/var/www/htdocs/images
put *.png
done
Easy to modify, to resize jpg or other formats, also, to change where it uploads to and how.

Some one might say, but that is not a Desktop, yes it is, my desktop is usually
a open terminal or several, sometimes a file manager as well, to help make it easier / faster , finding files,etc. The pretty background,/wall paper when I am not doing anything, (not seen above) serves no purpose, and is rarely seen.

Hmm I didn't notice that. Maybe some kind of hipster* photo filter effect.

And I should make a correction, that building is, more accurately, the Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library at Yale.

Great place - though very stuffy and quiet. Great if you want to get away from it all inside some art-deco 1930s shrine to vintage academia.

*I was actually given a warning for using the word 'hipster' on the Ubuntu forums. There was no negative or disparaging context, they merely objected to the use of the word in any context.

Debian Jessie, twm, staloneonetray, yad

I like twm tabs for titlebars as even when a window is maximised there's still some desktop space to the right of the tab to left or right click on (my left click shows the twm menu, right click brings up the volume control (yad script), iconmanager (I don't use icons) and stalonetray (that I load osmo, libre, radiotray and my own yad menu in which I include less often used programs so that the twm main menu (left click of desktop) doesn't become overweight)
