Back in the day, way back in the day, I was a huge rxvt and aterm fan. Tonight, while being bored, I fired up my old Debian Potato desktop (ahh the good ‘ol days), and started playing around. I have to admit, even though KDE was ancient, and my setup was old, it still looked good. With the PC being an old Pentium 133 with a whopping 64MB of RAM, and no Internet connection, there was no way I was going to play around with trying to get a screen shot. So after some tweaking this is what I got so far:
Not to shabby. I must admit, I like this old look and will keep it for a while and see if it wears thin on me or not.
