I can’t say that I ever spent my childhood wishing I had the ultimate terminal desktop but the more I have played on Linux, the more I have spent time in the terminal and I really can’t explain why I find it so charming. Perhaps it is the low memory usage of the applications? The clever modern implementation of certain terminal applications? I can’t really say, but there is something incredibly charming about the terminal.
My pursuit of having a terminal based “desktop” was Inspired by Linux Unplugged Presentation. A rather nice article and I fell into this hole of terminal excitement
After some exploration and some fiddling. I have put together a little resource for today me and future me. Hopefully this has some interest for you and I am open to other suggestions for making my Terminal based Desktop even better.
The possibilities are seemingly endless as the bandwidth required to sustain this is really quite low.
