Retro rice - venam - 16-06-2017

This is a simple ricing contest/compilation and the rules are simple:

Post a setup that is retro or "greescreen"-like.
We'll cast the vote during the rest of the month and post result in the end.

You'll most likely get the least votes! Now.I'm curious though..

I'm so retro I'm using punched cards

On my list of "fun tech projects", there's been an entry for several years that would be perfect for this: "Put Debian Etch on my Mac LC III"

Honestly I don't have time this week but someday I'll get around to it

Nah I don't have anything, I just wanted to talk. My stuff isn't cool enough for the retro club.

One week might not be enough so let's allow team work, multiple persons can work on the same rice.
Let's also allow customizations that you haven't made specifically for this contest.

Here we go, I'm the first one with an entry:

Tell me what you think and remember.

1. Retro computing has no interactive UI except a teletype. Here's my approach:


Have I won now? ;-)

2. venam: Good start for a not-so-retro desktop - but it looks undecided between early-90s Amiga (Worker), 8-bit computing (these colored lines in the top left corner), late-90s Windows (the background image), DOS (the sysinfo in the top right corner) and 2010 (transparent urxvt windows).
Choose one!

It's a theme, you can go beyond it, don't limit yourself.
If the contest was simply about reimplementing a vintage machine it would be boring.

You're good, you've hit 90% of them.
The prompt is also DOS.

I've mixed a bunch of different sources.
EDIT: I should have used "fake" transparency but I didn't bother.
EDIT2: Also the WM is UDE which is late 90s, early 2K.
