Turning of nautilus and other things that are not required but are enabled
by default on the desktop. You may wish to remove the fancy background and
keep a simple color (black ?). Also take a light theme (I'm using
Industrial for the controls, and OutlineWinter for the Window Borders
which made a real difference compared to Bluecurve).
It would be interesting if you could keep a list of things that worked for
you, put them on a website and publish it here. So people can use your

Let me know what you find and if you decide to publish something based on
