This is wonderfully creative. Color coded panel icons would be quite covenient when a teaching situation involves a language barrier. Very nicely done.

Hello! I installed LinuxLite on an old Ideapad 300S. Here's my minimalist desktop.




The wallpaper is here: https://wallpaperscraft.com/wallpaper/angle_architecture_facade_124253

I replaced the panel icons with plain circles whose colors match the programs.

Yellow is the menu:



Cyan is the file explorer:



Orange is Firefox (installed from a PPA):



Red is Textmaker word processor:



Brown is Synaptic package manager, and black is the terminal:



The rest of the indicators (network, volume, etc) are on a second, hidden panel on the right.

My laptop's specs:



I am amazed at how fast LinuxLite runs with such limited resources! Everything works perfectly! Even Netflix runs smoothly on Firefox and Chrome. Amazing!
