The Pragmatic Desktop - Desktop Customization & Workflow
Nihility
I don't want panels, statusbars on my desktop, I only need dmenu to spawn applications.

I rather put that into a statusbar of some sort.

Might just be semantics, but to fit a calendar, you'd need a pretty tall statusbar.

There are better solutions than specifically conky for that though. But it's nice to draw it as an overlay on your background. I don't know of anything else that can do that besides conky.

I actually don't use conky, got my calendar on my phone. But here's how you could use it:

Another thing a pragmatic desktop must have is a good texteditor. Without vim, I just get compile errors like "hhjj is not defined in this scope" and so on. Perhaps a compiler for C and C++ plus perl and python interpreters are an important aspect too?

Oh! this conky doesn't look really good.
One thing conky is good at is this:
