I know, I'm kind of resistant to change. But sometimes I do use NetBSD to experiment with changes a bit, such as adding the wallpaper. Another "major" change was having ~ in my shell prompt instead of "/home/userid", lol.

What's that clock below xload? It almost looks like a terminal window with a scrollbar on the left.
It's actually an xmessage window, indeed with a scrollbar. I have a shell alias to set an alarm, which beeps twice. Under X it puts up the window with the alarm time so I know when it will beep, or after it beeps when it did. The message stays up for 10 minutes after the alarm. It helps tear me away from the computer to do other things.
