    Color scheme was kindly shared by random internet guy (I took some heavy inspiration from his setup and it is one of the reasons I tried Plasma again).
    I wanted to install Plasma and see if I could make a macOS-like global menu in a futile attempt of getting more screen space in this 1366x768 display, but I couldn't make it work the way I wanted (I tried to compile Active Window Control from source so it could act like Plasma's global menu but with window controls, but it seems to be broken or I forgot some lib, I have to try again tomorrow), so it is Windows 7-like atm. Furthermore, I always see to hit the same problem with GTK apps when I move to Plasma without a clean install:

    I will see if I can find the cause this time instead of nuking it from orbit (I don't have that option anymore rip), likely caused by some leftover setting I did on XFCE.

    Besides that, Plasma is really solid nowadays, it is as light as XFCE/MATE on RAM, stable and has some great software (I swear KDE Connect on Plasma-Android beats even macOS-iOS integration), and way better than the "flagship Linux Desktop", AKA GNOME. I hope it gets some more traction on mainstream distros as time goes on, since Plasma 5.13 seems really promising and Plasma 5.12 was an outstanding release.

    I setup my Rasbian desktop to have XFCE instead of LXDE.

    While my HDD is dead, I quickly installed Void Linux on my 8GB USB stick, and I have to say, it is really minimalistic and runit is awesome, boot speed is miles better than the equivalent systemd setup, it is really easy to manage. The base system is about 3GB with XFCE (I could have gone MATE, but I wanted to save a few extra 20MBs). I installed a basic suite of software (browser, a text editor, WYSIWYG editor, media player) and I still had 3.8GB left until I installed NVIDIA and Eclipse (that dropped it to 2.5GB), not bad, it fully works for offline work (so it is a true portable setup, I could have saved storage space if I didn't pick that goal as my main one).

    Void is the OS if you don't want systemd or if you want something minimalistic, I am quite pleased about it besides the shortcomings I found.

    I use just the basic bone standard Windows 10 Version 1803 (OS Build 17134.48 for those interested) It's not much to look at and I might look into getting a replacement windows explorer shell if that's even possible.......

    I installed galliumos on my Chromebook, why? Because it actually works better and takes up less space than ChromeOS. GG, Google, GG.

    Yeah, you just need a wallpaper wide enough to span across the screens.

    Pfew, quite some time I haven't changed wallpapers. Also, I had to format my computer because of a bad CG driver update... Well at least I got to get almost everything back and I finally could get the most recent version of Windows 10 (instead of being stuck at the anniversary update for unknown reason)

    I love ChromeOS' UI. So simple and to the point.
