Remember the old Oyster? 40-something Window Managers and some Desktop Environments packed on an installable live ISO.
Who needs Oyster when you can Gangbang? This time with 53 Window Managers! Oh yeah!

No, we're not going to name all the WMs. You get to figure them out for yourself!

The ISO is a bit smaller in size (kicked synaptic and gparted), and now with Midori as GUI browser (additionally to xlinks2 and roaster, for the folks who want a 'real browser'), screenfetch, the wm-starters (thanks Pidsley) and the fixed boot menu labels. The colonel is again coming from towo, version 3.7.10, and the packages are a snapshot of July 12, 2013.

Please keep in mind that Gangbang is not recommended for a HD installation (thought bbqinstaller can be run, as root).

Speaking of root, Gangbang needs no password and no manual login. If you ever encounter the problem that you need a password: bbq. If you want to hack into the running session and not be logged into the wmchooser, change to tty2 and log in as "root" with password "bbq".

All the window managers should have either bound keys or right-click root-window menus. Remember to check ~/.xbindkeysrc for the xbindkeys stuff.

The important bound keys:

Ctl - Alt - Enter.....open x-terminal-emulator
Alt - F1.........open LinuxBBQ's Terminal Menu
Alt - F2.....................open a run dialog
Alt - F3...............open the dmenu launcher
Alt - F4...........................start emacs
Alt - F5......open a random website in Roaster
Alt - F6...................open Midori browser
Alt - F7......open the Window Manager manpages
Alt - F8.................open the Desktop Help
Alt - o........................decrease volume
Alt - p........................increase volume
Alt - Shift - q............quit window manager
Ctl - Alt - Delete.......choose window to kill
