 Fluxbox, The Slickest Window Manager

monolinux takes a look at the Fluxbox window manager.

"Fluxbox is a fork of Blackbox code (version 0.61.1 to be precise), another window manager that remains popular to this day. I have a feeling, however, that many dedicated Blackbox users began to grow weary because some ideas that they had for future Blackbox features weren't being considered and development as a whole was rather stagnant. In turn, they decided to start their own project, naming it Flux (which means "frequent change; fluctuation") Box (remnant of the Blackbox project's suffix)."
