It's probably just my tastes, but in some of the others it seems like a struggle to get good looking window borders and color themes.

Edit: on the other hand, I really like the look of your Fluxbox screenshots.
Thank you!

I would say Fluxbox is a bit better aesthetically because of better image rendering of the Window buttons whilst the buttons for Openbox are more "pixelated". Technically that is because Openbox does not support XPM or PNG images but only simple bitmap (bi-color).

I also prefer the way you configure the menu in Fluxbox comparing to the XML-menu in Openbox, it just feels a bit clumsy the chosen XML-way in Openbox.

And lastly, Fluxbox has its own toolbar, which is cool (And also really easy to disable if needing alternatives)

Just my two cents

Who needs a toolbar when you got the openbox client-list-combined-menu?

What are you using for your "appearance style" and window manager theme?

First steps with herbstluftwm. I'm not sure I'm ready to make herbst my daily driver, but it's got some cool features.

Thanks. It's the stock xfce-kde2 theme and stock Oxygen theme. I forget where I got the wallpaper and the terminal emulator is "Tilda." I like the synergy between the Xfce4-whiskermenu-plugin and Tilda. I bind the open function for Tilda to F1 and the menu open function to ALT + F1. It makes for a great workflow on laptops while mobile and saves on screen real estate.

I got myself a second-hand Dell Latitude. Even though this thing is only a dual core 2.2Ghz i3, it's stormingly fast in comparison to my netbook - a single core 1.6Ghz Atom. Compile times are so much quicker on this. I imagine if I ever went to Slack on my desktop [which currently runs Debian on a Q8400, compile times would be like grease lightning for most packages].

Anyway, here's my first go at getting it looking halfway decent after installing Slack on Fri night.

EDIT: just found out this laptop has a wifi hardware killswitch, excellent.
