That's a beautiful desktop, JWJones. If I have more time in the future I'd love to play around with Windowmaker or the like, but for right now Xfce provides a decent compromise between function and glitz. You did a nice job with that!

Thanks! Yeah, it's kinda like getting to play with a new toy, as I have never really experimented with Windowmaker before. I like the small memory footprint (smaller than my usual Xfce), and the somewhat "back to the 90s" feel, hahaha.

I'm actually all about the 'back to 90's' feel so I know where you are coming from. I not only have Slackware as my one and only desktop operating system, but I'm using a Model M keyboard from back in the day. I also don't own a cellphone, iPhone, iPad, iPod, or any such thing and I've never sent a text message in my life. It's almost like I'm going technologically backwards, but not.

Talking SlackXperience 2013

I'm posting in the forum after such a long time. Been using Linux for 6 years now. Last two years I had gone over to the dark side and jumped ship to Ubuntu. The first four years were pure Slackmania! :P.

It Took me a few hours to completely set up -current on my Laptop, everything has been smooth up until now. Here is a screenshot of my Desktop. I am amazed how KDE 4.x suite has matured in stability, will keep it default for now.

I'm back to my first love!, for good!.

My not so beautiful slackware desktop

This is cwm.

cwm.png

The beauty of cwm is the lack of clutter (look ma, no window decorations), the usefulness of its window selection and program execution commands (one of the latter shown), along with this little stat (this count is higher than it should be because glibc never took in strlcpy and friends):

$ wc -l *.c
212 calmwm.c
982 client.c
648 conf.c
106 fgetln.c
483 group.c
494 kbfunc.c
620 menu.c
275 mousefunc.c
180 screen.c
278 search.c
61 strlcat.c
57 strlcpy.c
70 strtonum.c
81 util.c
426 xevents.c
87 xmalloc.c
532 xutil.c
2373 y.tab.c
7965 total

More indications of its leanness:
