It's pretty easy to remove stuff. As long as I boot to the desktop at around 100MB I'm fine.

The above is a bit of a cheat as it's on Hyperbola and 32bit so a lower figure than normal distros anyway.  64bit usually adds  about 15MB in my case. I could remove fittstool as I don't use it at the moment unless I login via notion4

The question is not to remove programs and get ten megabytes.
A modern browser will eat it all up.
It’s just that by default, things are included that are unnecessary in a particular case and are often interesting only to developers.
My DE retained all the friendly functionality.

But this is just my opinion, someone is more interested in 32 bits on a computer with i7, they have the right! smile

RE: pcmanfm

It's very useable and low resource and quick. And making it more user friendly is simply a matter of adding extensions, I added a bunch of right-click context menu options to mine, quick image re-sizer and a rotator using imagemagick and yad, open terminal within whatever folder or directory you're in, open as root, edit as root, set image as wallpaper, view exif data etc. etc. basically all the functions you can get from a larger DE file manager like caja.

It's very possible to mimic the functionality of a full DE with Openbox, pcmanfm, and tint2, you just have to connect the dots.

Was super easy to edit the look and colors with gtk2 as well....

Pcmanfm is a truly wonderful file manager.
Out of curiosity, I installed it and clicked. They and my Konqueror are like twins, especially in the pcmanfm-qt version
