[News] In Praise of Fluxbox, Choice

Hash: SHA1

In A State Of Flux

,----[ Quote ]
| For those who like to spend time and care customising their desktop and who 
| are looking for a light, fast window manager, I highly recommend Fluxbox. 



Technology: Fluxbuntu: User-friendly Featherweight Linux?

,----[ Quote ]
| Fluxbuntu bundles a relatively complete desktop experience in ultra-light 
| package. Those with significant Linux experience under their belts might find 
| the operating system to be a miracle that brings their older machines out of 
| the graveyard and back to life. Another good place for Fluxbuntu - and one 
| where I think it is currently more appropriately suited than the desktop, due 
| to its limitations - might be on a home server, where you don't want all the 
| extras included in Ubuntu, but still want a GUI interface instead of a 
| commandline-only machine. Fluxbuntu certainly has a niche to fill but it has 
| a long way to go, and if you aren't comfortable using the command line and  
| editing the occasional configuration file, it's probably best to stay away 
| from Fluxbuntu.         



Come Fly with Fluxbuntu

,----[ Quote ]
| Fluxbuntu is a must try Linux distribution which I feel has a very bright 
| future ahead. I think new to Linux users will be able to handle it well with 
| minor trouble. But, it might take some time for them to get used to its 
| Fluxbox desktop. Meanwhile, advanced users will love it for its speed and 
| versatility.    
| All in all, Fluxbuntu is very much like Ubuntu. Those who want to try Ubuntu 
| but can’t because of hardware limitations will definitely be fulfilled with 
| Fluxbuntu. Those who have higher-end machines but are into speed and 
| performance might want to consider using Fluxbuntu, as it is definitely 
| lightweight and can make anyone’s powerful computer fly.    
| I totally agree on what is advertised about Fluxbuntu: Lightweight. 
| Productive. Agile. Efficient. Ubuntu. 


Review: TinyFlux 1.0

,----[ Quote ]
| TinyFlux has earned my respect, and while I can't suggest it to new users, I 
| can suggest it to the more seasoned user out there without hesitation.  It 
| should also be good to use on all those computers that have low hardware 
| specs, or anything that is older and has seen greener pastures.   


Fluxbuntu 7.10 RC review

,----[ Quote ]
| It’s Linux. It’s lightweight. You have access to Ubuntu repositories. Good 
| choice of default applications. –> it’s a very good choice for old computers. 
| I’m going to install it on my parent’s computer (P2 @ 400 MHz, 128 MB RAM). 
| As they use it for internet browsing, Fluxbuntu seems almost the perfect 
| choice.    
| Also, some of the programs included with Fluxbuntu may be better, in some 
| cases, than “classic” applications that do the same thing (Claws Mail vs 
| Thunderbird or Evolution, AbiWord vs OpenOffice.org), on any distribution,.  


Fluxbuntu 7.10 RC on 450Mhz K6-2, 256Mb

,----[ Quote ]
| In short, this is something that has been needed for a long time — a cool and 
| clean Ubuntu derivative that’s at once lightweight and comprehensive. If 
| you’re a past Ubuntu user and you have a 500Mhz machine in the closet, this 
| is what you’d want on it. I would recommend this over Xubuntu for anyone in 
| the sub-1Ghz range, any day of the week.    
| Try it. You’ll like it.


A weekend with fluxbox.

,----[ Quote ]
| My biggest problem with using fluxbox is not fluxbox itself. I wanted it to 
| be able to save some resources for my aging computer but I still needed to 
| use KDE programs. So I checked my resource usage with pure KDE and then with 
| fluxbox and KDE programs. There was no difference in resource usage.    


Fluxbox on Gutsy, just to be different

,----[ Quote ]
| Just for giggles, I installed Fluxbox on Gutsy today ... which isn't
| really very daring, since the repositories have only been open for
| a day or two, and there?s very little in there that has changed.

Distrowar: Fluxbuntu vs. MiniMe

,----[ Quote ]
| Fluxbuntu and MiniMe are ultra-lightweight versions of two equally popular 
| Linux distributions namely Ubuntu and PCLinuxOS. Fluxbuntu kept it light by 
| utilizing a Fluxbox window manager as well as other unhefty pre-installed 
| applications. Meanwhile, MiniMe uses a KDE desktop but with minimum 
| out-of-the-box software packages.    

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
