There is nothing personal Zoltanh, but as Christoph as commented, I
would rather use a XFCE Spin with a minimum set of "user applications".

mpaint, gnote, turpial, easyteag, Fpm2, etc. this is all unnecessary
clutter in my opinion.

a terminal, a mail client, an audio player, a video players, a web
browser, a PDF reader, etc. those are the basics anyone expect to see,
after a fresh install.

The "complete desktop experience" in a lightweight DE Spin, should be
limited to the basics in my opinion.

Note: I could not come up with a better term than "user applications".
