Switched to Debian Stable XFCE. Not much was added or tweaked since I am currently using Windows for gaming and dedicating time on VirtualBox to test both Ubuntu and Debian Stable with following options (ubuntu has been completely stripped apart): XFCE panel TINT2 panel LXDE panel Other panels not commonly known Window manager: OpenBox BlackBox For those who do not know, BB is a old school minimalistic window manager and extremely light. Just not very customizable when it comes to themes. all the above are being tweaked the same in both Bases to see which combo I will go with. I am familiar with OpenBox configurations, but havent used BB for over 7 years.
