@zuben el genub have you looked at a windows manager like fluxbox? I'm not sure if the project is still being developed but it was a very light weight windows manager that pretty minimal and built a lot of it's application launching around a right click to activate menu system. I used it a good bit when I was using a graphical interface for Unix and Linux. Might be worth looking into.
