Switched back to MATE. While KDE was mostly nice after some tweaking and replacing horrible dolphin with caja, it wasn't too stable and had annoying weird kwin issues. MATE might be old, but its super stable at least for me.

Quoting: mirvI hope no driver troubles in switching around? You know what you're doing so probably not, but would still be interested in your thoughts on the matter.
Only because I have a very specific xorg.conf for my Zaphod Mode dual monitors. I just had to grab the xf86-video-ati package and make the necessary changes to the ports and driver lines. I do not have a display manager installed so I could easily make the changes with nano before launching Xfce.

Eventually I am going to take the fans, shroud, and heat sink off the Radeon RX 460 just to make sure it is not something obvious like bad capacitors or something. At least I can still win Icewind Dale from the Radeon HD 4670, and it gives me an excuse to play around with Dianoga and get more articles done. Rage 128 Pro is still working just fine.

I've always loved MATE, tried Gnome 3 for a while but got boring really fast. Xfce would be my 2nd favorite.

Got a link to that wallpaper? I'd like to borrow it

XFCE is my second choice as well. KDE third. Gnome is just awful imo.

Also a new Holomatch icon and Serious Engine 1 launcher down with my source ports.

I've had this look for a long while now. Got my favorite color and all, lol.

Even made my own Kvantum theme to support the look.

New year, new wallpaper:

Just messing around OpenBox for the evening. Software used: tint2 (panel) and feh (wallpaper setter).

It won't become my daily driver, however it's been a fun learning experience customizing it.
