Daft name for a Linux installation, but I must say I'm quite impressed with it, especially the amount of programs that come with a standard installation. It is based on Ubuntu (what isn't these days?), except it has the OpenBox Window manager. As usual with it being Ubuntu under the hood, it runs as a live cd, but with it being OpenBox it's very fast. Theres nothing on the black desktop, except some info in the top right hand, you know specs like ram used etc. Just a right click to gain access the menu. In fact it's a decent menu, for anyone interested here's what in there!
