Fresh install of OpenBSD 5.5 snapshot, with Gnome 3.10.2. Still have a few bugs I'm trying to work out, but overall, I like it:

^ I have standardized to using cwm on both OpenBSD and Slackware. It's my favorite stacking window manager. I also like sithwm, but I haven't tried building it on either, yet.

Thanks for the tip. First I need to patch it and then figure out the best way to use it as a desktop. The only bad thing so far is the lack of ext4 support and Firefox crashing

Cool. Will have to take a look at that one. I mostly use XFCE and Fluxbox if I have an older box. Are you compiling cwm from source on Slackware?
