standards-compliant, fast, light-weight and extensible window manager
21 reviews

Openbox works with your applications, and makes your desktop easier to manage. This is because the approach to its development was the opposite of what seems to be the general case for window managers. Openbox was written first to comply with standards and to work properly. Only when that was in place did the team turn to the visual interface.

Openbox is fully functional as a stand-alone working environment, or can be used as a drop-in replacement for the default window manager in the GNOME or KDE desktop environments.

Openbox 3 is a completely new breed of window manager. It is not based upon any existing code base, although the visual appearance has been based upon that of Blackbox. Openbox 2 was based on the Blackbox 0.65.0 codebase.

Some of the things to look for in Openbox are:

* ICCCM and EWMH compliance!
* Very fast
* Chainable key bindings
* Customizable mouse actions
* Window resistance
* Multi-head Xinerama support!
* Pipe menus

5 I really like performance of openbox. It's so lightweight and extremely configurable. You can spend couple of days to configure as you wish and you will be rewarded with great performance. Also games with Openbox work much faster.

5 Openbox is the desktop for getting the best framerate from your games! Simple, unbloated with services/processes and makes your games run even faster!

5 Fantastique ! se lance rapidement, réactif... Seul problème : l'intégration des applications "tierces" (file manager, firefox..."), avec ajout de bordures peu esthétiques

5 Lovely minimal window manager. Can be completely customized by way of menus and scripts. It is not full-featured like a desktop environment, rather that part is left to the user. If you need something to run on older hardware or are striving for speed (but aren't afraid to get your hands dirty) then one should strongly consider this.
