Nice to know Hedon. I liked KDE back in the 3.x days but I've been using tiling environments so long that its hard to get used to having to click around ;)

I am OK with upgrading to a new PC after 9 years of service, and the old one is still useful.

Well, as most everyone knows, I've been running Xfce since KDE went to v4.x (with all the funky graphics and pecans or almonds on the screen corner, the MASSIVE RAM usage, etc.).

Sadly, the newer version of Xfce has "features" (one in particular) that will probably prevent me from upgrading to Slackware 15 for a while.

In all fairness to KDE, modern versions have really reduced their footprint, nearly on par with lighterweight DEs, like XFCE.  FWIW...  Although, I have no idea what version may be available in Slackware!  But might be worth looking into if you liked it, once upon a time.  KDE used to be a resource hog, but I've been very impressed with devs ability to slim it down.  It's not "lightweight", but it's better than Gnome usage and starting to approach XFCE.

Last time I checked, I was using KaOS, a dedicated KDE distro on Arch base.  KDE hovered around 350-375MB RAM at idle from a cold boot.  Xubuntu (my only point of comparison) was in the low 300s, but can't remember exactly.  FWIW...

NOPE. It's hardwired for system windows in Xfce. You can turn it off and all other windows will be fine. You can utilize your own themes and such, but the system windows remain with large UGLY window decorations/colors.

I experienced this a while back when I briefly upgraded from 14.2 to Current in preparation for 15, but disliked it so much that I went back to 14.2.

nyway, the reason I don't want to upgrade is due to major changes in Xfce, one of the most annoying being Client Side Decorations (CSD). I HATE IT... HATE IT... HATE IT!

Can't you change that to the WM controls?

If you have a Sandy Bridge processor you cannot get W10 updates any longer.
Oh, I see what you mean.

I thought you meant you were running W10 and were getting updates, but suddenly they stopped.
