comment Linux without graphical OS but with graphical resources
Then I would recommend just disabling graphical boot, and using the $DISPLAY variable to access GUI stuff from the console.

comment Linux without graphical OS but with graphical resources
No, I am not confused. The OP asked for an environment as much like a Commodore as possible. This mean no security, no multi user, and login. The best way to get close to this is single user mode. The two goals are not related to one another you can have console access with multi user you can have GUI with single user. It's two parts of the larger overall goal.

"What I would like to see is when I boot my machine into the command-line, ...". The old "Commodore" computers were not multi user. They weren't "user" at all. You turned them on and got a blinky cursor for typing commands. All commands were tries and there was no security to speak of. The closest thing to that to day is "single user mode", which basically starts you logged in as root, bypass most, if not all, security.

comment What are some alternatives to Compton and Compiz in XFCE?
You will have to try and see, but usually tearing problems are not directly the compositors fault, but instead the drivers or configuration.

Nope, not really, Compton is a fork (there are others) but xcompmgr is still being maintained (as of 2015-10-22 at quick glance). It's light weight and more of a proof of concept, so there's not a lot of dev work going to it, but if your wanting a lightweight compositor, it's worth a shot.

comment Where are the contents of the clipboard stored?
You can't access that address and it always changes. Accessing the clipboard by memory address isn't going to work. Not legitimately anyway. See github.com/ThomasHabets/clipsniff

comment How to make super-user permissions last longer than using sudo?
kinda what I meant. It's not that su is disabled, just that you have to execute it as root, instead of typing your root password (which by default doesn't exist)
