Oh no. Please find no poor excuse for your flawed taste!
Re "novelty", I'd better re-check twm. But either you're talking
of *really* ancient stuff, or the item just isn't, or my memory
fails me that much. :)

Hey are you working with 640x480? 1600x1200 is just fine
a resolution, delivering perfectly good ~100 dpi at 21" CRT;
and there are decent 1400x1050+ 15+" TFTs in numbers these days.
Advocating for single-app workarounds of Mac II days is a lost
cause when former high-end workstation grade display hardware is
somewhat more realistic at home. As much as I like MacOS
Classic, just can't agree on that.

I do remember that in either KDE2 or the GNOME a few years ago.
The mode was switched to by some quite reasonably named switch
in some kind of control center. Aren't you slamming an open
door, accidentally? :)
