After all the sexy openbox themes posted in here I decided to install it and check it out. Lets just say I'm really impressed! I tried out Fluxbox once upon a time and found it to be a little too much effort to get working just the way I liked it.. Openbox was super easy to configure.

I might stick with this instead of KDE for a while and see if there is anything that makes me want to go back. Its nice to use about 500-600 mbs less ram than KDE

your wicd and power applet icons kill the monochrome-ness
you'd have to change your icon theme for the power applet, but this will fix wicd for ya
