Is that amount of RAM displayed in screenfetch correct? I am a bit baffled about the fact that someone is running an 4-core/8-threads high-end CPU with only 2GB of RAM.

I think I miss such a conky thing in the same size of the folder view in the right lower corner. never used conky so far, but for symmetry I think I will have to learn about it now

Back in my day, we had xterms showing our import command in our screenshots, and we were grateful. We also compiled our own kernels, in the snow, uphill, both ways.

I missed WindowMaker. It's been about 10 years or so since I ran linux as a desktop OS and WindowMaker is what I used to use.

Seeing your screenshot makes me miss folder view in general. I've got desktop icons right now. I think I'll switch back.

I wonder why KDE ships with an empty desktop by default these days - no folder view, no desktop icons... just... empty.
