OpenPandora FLTK GUI by Xentalion OpenPandora FLTK GUI by Xentalion
So for fun I threw together a Ubuntu Netbook remix style interface (though targeted at the OpenPandora console).

This is what I came up with using Fluid (FLTK's RAD tool). According to gmemusage, it uses 2-4 MBs based on the background you use. And probably less once I move the icons out of the app. Of course, it doesn't do anything yet, but I think it'll be a pretty cool interface compared with the ugly matchbox-desktop (9 MBs on my debian system without Background). P:<
(matchbox-keyboard killed Xorg when I killed it. :| )
(Sorry matchbox devs... matchbox isn't actually ugly, it's just too fat for my tastes. :( )

Background is from Cave Story. :D

OpenPandora looks to be a really good console. I'm working on a game that will make good use of the control scheme.

I'm planning on porting my survival horror game to it. I'm probably going to stick with the regular d+pad + buttons scheme and not use the mouse/scroll wheel though.

Good idea :D

The use of FLTK It's a nice and simple idea for old pc like my parent's old Pentium 2, GTK+ based desktops like Xfce and Lxde are a bit resource hungry for that kind of pcs, even with a customized Debian setup...

PS: I didn't know about Fluid and FLTK RAD environments o_o, anyway I don't know about C, how to use toolkits and those things xD

FLTK is my favourite toolkit, probably because I spend most of my time using PIIs and PIs. I switched to it from GTK+ and I haven't moved back.

I'd suggest JWM as an alternative to a GTK/XFCE/LXDE desktop, and just us pcmanfm's filemanager for desktop icons or something if required.

Fluid is really easy, it's basically drag and drop and it does most coding for you. It creates C++ code though.

RAD = Rapid Application Development tool :)
