No desktop.

No icons.

No desktop background.

No colors.

No unneccesary images.

Not an inch of screenspace wasted.

or the little windowmanager that could.

No phones.

No lights.

No motor cars.

Not a single luxury . . . .

Why bother with a window manager at all? Just get a VT102 terminal, connect it through a serial port, and use the console. You can do everything you need there, right?
