    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.

    i know its all personal choices but I think Linux should move to some more heavy graphics oriented window system, as our systems can handle it easily nowadays

    As long as you have good browsing habits, you'll be fine.

    After some time being away, I stopped using Linux as my daily driver and reverted back to Windows 10 for gaming purposes.

    Windows is heavily customized for my gaming needs.

    As for AV of choice, Kaspersky 18 since it is enough for my needs and light enough.

    Reverted to good old McAfee Endpoint Security.
    Only module not installed its the Firewall Module because Windows Firewall is enough for me and considering I am a gamer, the less I configure the better it is for me in the long run (time wise).

    Please bear in mind that despite this being McAfee, it is far from the standard home solutions.

    Changed back to Kaspersky Antivirus 18 from McAfee Endpoint Security.

    Reason was simple: No way to disable Idle Scan (something I do not need at all). Aside from that, no issue with McAfee at all. Will probably use it on my other systems, just not the Gaming one.

    Currently revisiting QupZilla Browser and the keyboard driven Qutebrowser

    Have used both extensively in Linux, so this time around trying them in Windows 10.

    Also installed Chocolatey which is a package manager for Windows (required in order to install Qutebrowser (one of the ways).

    A small addition to existing configuration: Midori web browser since when I'm running multiple eve clients and needing a web browser on top of it, chrome and Firefox can get noisy.

    removed qutebrowser for same reason as I need mouse control over keyboard shortcuts

    Edit:will require some changes on midori. stock midori is lacking
