Hi, I'm looking for a desktop environment for my pi when running on a 20" 4:3 monitor at 320x240 resolution. LXDE doesn't really support such a low resolution and is unusable.
Are there any desktops with low res support that would look like windows 3.x or similar?
The desktop environment does not constrain, scale or make applications work that were not coded to be used at low or other random resolutions. Many applications are hard coded to work at specific resolutions so at low res, you will get playing fields in games that are larger than the screen and/or menus that run off the screen and can't be accessed.
You can experiment with framebuffer settings in /boot/config.txt to see if you can find a setting that will scale the screen image down AND still be able to read text if possible.
In general low res screens are not usable for desktop applications and are more suited for a custom GUI.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
