Openbox Distros

After I posted the Arch Linux distributions list I cannot resist to post a list with distributions dedicated to the openbox desktop environment.

Debian based:

Crunchbang
THE status quo openbox distro.
Alien Section OS
Debian and Ubuntu editions. Only 32 bit.
Semplice
Based on Debian Sid. Innovative.
Zenix
Based on Debian Stable with a Buddhist touch.

Arch Linux based:

Archbang
Modeled after crunchbang.
CTKArch
Minimalistic Arch Linux setup - not a distribution.
Elegance
Sadly probably deprecated.

Ubuntu based:

Madbox
Fast.
Alien Section OS
Debian and Ubuntu editions. Only 32 bit.
Ububox
Stylish. Only 32 bit.

Fedora based:

Viperr
Sadly probably deprecated.

Crux Linux based:

Kwort
No live cd.

Slackware Linux based:

Zenwalk
Not openbox-only but they put a lot of effort in their openbox edition too. No live cd.

Puppy Linux:

SlimPup
Heavily inspired by Crunchbang and Archbang.

PCLinuxOS has MiniMe:

There’s the forum and a download page from melodie.
You have to search a bit for the openbox distro.

I know lists are a bit stupid somehow. But for openbox-fans like me it might be nice to try and learn from each one of them.

Have fun!
