Oh, of course, one of the better stackers. Father of Fluxbox and grandmother of Openbox :) Needs definitely more propaganda :)

Ok, this might be stretching it a little bit, but it is a version of blackbox, on windows7

^ Pretty cool. I knew that this was possible, but never known anyone personally who used it, until now. :D

I liked trying alternate shells on Windows but the trouble I'd run into (with more than one) was some applications that drew their own decorations like Canopus/Grass Valley applications and things like the (ancient) Sonique music player could lock up the whole system. I think I might have tried bblean at one point.

I usually install blackbox as a fallback graphical environment in case I need it (a pure cli environment doesn't work well on my TV), but I don't customize it.

Blackbox needs no introduction. It's venerable and shit:

Since I posted about camel carcass in the spectrwm thread, and it was not a camel scrot, I guess I have to post the correct one here.

As the other one, this is pretty much default camel carcass, with iceweasel added...and... that is pretty much it.

It feels very right on the old p4box.

It is a slow weekend up here.
So, this is a netinstall, with blackbox/bbkeys/dmenu/ceni
the Xresources is bacons kurwalinuks...
I think that is pretty much it.

Ok, I quite like the look of the bright kurwakurwacolors, but it does crash with some things,
like mc and htop.

New try with dkegs readamist colors, which seems to work well, and sort of fits the wallpaper a little bit better.
