Hi, based on the multitude of answers and options received, you can also
consider the magnificent old days CDE, now open sourced.
Here a screenshot of version 2.2.0d (beta ;-) as compiled some months ago
on my Fedora 28 Asus U36SD ..

I just see that there is now final version 2.3.0... time to recompile it on
Fedora 29

I couldn't resist... and I cannot forget how beautiful it was on my HP9000
workstation on 1994 !



I hope that konsole will still be around after 2024, or that terminal is upgraded with the
konsole features.

I recently put together a lab machine to test drive the hypervisor features of kvm.  I
could not get the numeric keypad to work with gnome3 on the host machine.  I could get it
to work with KDE and Mate, but the screen management for a two monitor hypervisor was not
as good as I needed.  I finally tried cinnamon and was impressed; it had great screen
management with the hypervisor host and guest, and my numeric keypad worked.  I have
continued cinnamon.
