I "rice" less and less myself, when I am done, I am done for at least half a year. It takes too much energy, indeed.

I think ricing would be an utter pain on a TWM. Fortunately, with Xfce, the hardest thing is just choosing a wallpaper. But even though my setup looks basic and now changes little, it did take me a long time to find a look I was happy with. Mostly this was to do with Vivaldi being too customisable, and I had to make it look good with the panel.

Added an additional ASUS PB287Q. Great monitors for the price! Put it in a portrait orientation, and the amount of text I can fit on screen now is amazing.

There is a trick to making any old 15-19" monitor as big as that one: put your nose right on the glass in the middle of the smaller monitor and then look upwards towards the corner, the monitor will look enormous

xfce4 v4.14

Robby Workman's xfce4 version 4.14 with default Greybird theme on Slackware current - no customisation as such. Greybird 'accessibility' theme.

My old Dell small form factor desktop and a couple of cheap recycled 19" monitors provide two and a half million pixels. Still trying different layouts for the dual monitor style of working.

slightly off topic, how much weight did it gain with the transfer to gtk3?

Haven't done any systematic measurements, good point.

On the i5 desktop box with Intel graphics and 8Gb ram it subjectively seems just as responsive as 4.12. As you can see in top one Firefox tab on LQ and the desktop is running at about 500Mb and Xorg/xfwm4 coming in at 130Mb.
