I've mirrored it now also onto my FreeBSD desktop. Just a single visual difference that distinguishes the two. The key point of the post being the manner/method to get a borderless/title free desktop terminal session (Eterm and jwm commands/parameters).
If you want to be pedantic then your own last posting is more of a IBM desktop, and any screenshot of base FreeBSD would be a cli.
I've made it perfectly clear I multi boot different choices of desktop systems, and for evaluation purposes have set up two to look identical. You do know what identical is don't you? They are even more identical now as I had been running OpenOffice in the Freebsd version, versus LibreOffice in the other, whereas they're both now using the same choice of Office.Mods have warned people who posted OpenBSD screenshots in the past that this thread was for posting screenshots of FreeBSD desktops only. Yours isn't even a shot of a BSD desktop, it's a Linux desktop and a continuation of your promotion of Debian in a FreeBSD forum.
My screenshot is of FreeBSD 11.1-RELEASE with an IBM Thinkpad wallpaper due to it being a Thinkpad T61. You do know the difference in a wallpaper, computer and a computer Operating System, don't you?
Not to mention a FreeBSD and Debian forum.
FVWM Vertex theme

Man, you made it, so cool, yet so light and comfortable
Thanks. I never change the wallpaper on that machine and it sits on a table by my recliner and serves as my MP3 player. I just bought a new pair of Koss PRO4AAT Titanium full-sized headphones especially for use with it.
I use a lightweight pair of Koss KTXPRO1 Titanium open ear headphones to listen to music while I'm online and at $20 a pair they sound better than my $100 Bose earbuds.

I like jwm for the simplicity of configuring everything in the one file (startup programs, windows decorations, layout ...etc.) and the flexibility it provides. My preferred core is xorg, jwm, pcmanfm and I use pcmanfm --desktop to provide desktop icons in addition to being the file manager.
I don't tend to use menus, instead I use desktop icons and the bottom left where the menu icon might usually be is just a showdesktop control (toggle). I also have a tray menu that opens the applications folder up for other less regularly used programs. Anything else I invoke either by pressing the Special_R (right WIN key) that pops up a run program dialog, or I use the desktop ... that I have predominately set to be a terminal session (xterm). I have little desire for pretty picture wallpapers, as I can just open up some pretty pictures interactively if I feel the urge.
396 packages installed in total, most of which are installed as part of xorg and apache openoffice (under FreeBSD I find that works better for me than LibreOffice (that I've been a long term user of)).

...for a little while I used tunapie, before it became deprecated...
Soon, when it'll be finished, I'll upload improved configuration,Thank you very much for the detailed walkthrough, you made me curious, I think I'll give FVWM a try as soon as I can
So FVWM is even a litle bit more lightweight than Fluxbox.
