Blackbox 4 WINDOWS!


Now, i have to spend more time in windows than i would like. But to ease the pain, I have found a ported from linux to windows! BB4WIN ports blackbox to windows! Its pretty cool, and half the time other people acutally think im in linux hehehe.

yeah.. and have you found that it's a very very poor bit of software yet? you might want to look at an alternative verion called bluebox http://bluebox.redf.net/ if you can find it... looks a lot better.

mind you, litestep.org is really the way to go. includes a number of blackbox dervied themes.

I've just tried it out. It's pretty neat. I cannot wait to format my computer, install back win98 for games (since I've 2k now, and although it's a better OS then 98, for games it is not...) with Blackbox and Slackware 9.1 also with Blackbox . tasty...

Well is not that bad acid_kewpie. I had some trouble with plugins but overall, it speeds up my computer on windows and is easily scriptable. I enjoy it but thats my point of view.

I would love to try that bluebox thing, but there site must be down.
