Fluxbox - Ultra-Fast/Simple Linux GUI

Filed under
Fluxbox

One of the big perks of using a Linux distribution is having a choice of what window manager you want to use. The one I’ll be concentrating on is fluxbox, a window manager.

Fluxbox is one of the lightest window managers you can use for a graphical Linux environment. To put it in perspective, GNOME is like a gas-guzzling Hummer H2 while fluxbox is like a gas-sipping Toyota Prius.

I have used fluxbox on occasion and I really like the way it’s sort of the "anti-GUI" GUI. There is no "start" menu. It has a ton of keycommands. The menu system is fully editable. It does do docking easily. And a whole lot more.

Linux @ About.com

During the past month I have been in discussions with a number of people at about.com. I have been provided with the opportunity of writing articles on the linux.about.com subsite and I am in full control of all the content that will appear on that site. It is early days and there is some old content on the site which is a bit out of date but I plan to make linux.about.com a great resource for everyone. Read more
