i've found the most 2000s ui you can still use with modern stuff

it's called the trinity desktop! started as a fork / continuation of kde 3.5 (when kde 4 came around), it is probably the most 2000s desktop ever. i'm actually sometimes running it as my daily driver / backup  (i actually use kde, so i'm somewhat familiar)

make yourself a live iso with q4os [1] , since they offer one
i don't know if you should install q4os - do make a dualboot but trinity is available for a lot of distros anyway [2]

TDE, XFCE and MATE are encapsulating the nostalgic feeling of traditional desktop.
Now I want to tinker around TDE, thanks xd

well jusr make sure to avoid the tde network manager because i think it uses their own code - use networkmanager applet
and the wallet broke me - again, i ended using gnome-keyring

well it seems tde actually has a networkmanager frontend!

also those stuff applied to arch linux and the trinity's own arch repos

But common, you must show your desktop like on unixporn, wallpaper, 4 terminals and funny website xD
