Lightbulb - Linux Icon Desktop (Tiny App, onroot) - New Devs and Alternatives


Here a possible list of desktops for lightweight install:

here are the most classical ones:
kde and gnome desktops
What's next?

Fbpanel could need some desktop, with fbdesktop? Maybe some Source code for simple solutions.

Thank you for discussing this topic and Looking forward to hearing you.

Best regards,

No way can gnome or kde be considered "light weight"
