Openbox is a window manager. It is the default window manager of several distributions the most prominent of which is probably Crunchbang. It is also the most common window manager used with LXDE and RazorQT.
I have 4 computers at present, 1 tablet running Android, 1 Mac Mini dual-booting OSX and Crunchbang Statler, 1 Thinkpad T42 running Archbang 2012-12, and 1 Inspiron 2200 running Crunchbang Statler.
Relatively little has changed in the Linux Desktop world since my last post in March. As such this will be a relatively quick post.
I’d say the biggest news would be the targeting of Gnome 3 Fallback mode for primary use by a couple distributions. Trisquel, one of the FSF’s approved distributions as well as Solus OS have decided to go this way, disregarding the Gnome team’s UI redesign, and instead opting to enable the “fallback mode” to be a more usable, less crippled environment.
